To the Editor:

Why is there so much hate today?

In Orlando, innocent people’s lives were taken away.

Just out for an evening of frolic and fun,

Until a madman, used his gun.

Gunning down 49 plus, young gays and straight

Showing his unjustified, overpowering hate.

To take someone’s life, was not his right,

Obliterating those within his sight.

God, is the only one, who can take life away,

The life He’s given us, it’s His to say.

Beautiful young women and vibrant young men,

Why has this tragedy happened again?

Why can’t we all live in peace,

And have these senseless, killings cease?
