After the Pulse shooting in Orlando, I was in shock. This happened just two and a half hours away from where I live, and the reality of the world slapped me in the face. It was this shooting that really woke me up to what was going on, and I firmly believe we can not brush this off. WE CANNOT LET SHOOTINGS AND HATE CRIMES BE OUR NEW NORMAL. I had tried to write about Pulse a number of times since the shooting, and I wrote this piece yesterday. Enjoy.

Can You Feel That?

Ba-bum, Ba-bum, Ba-bum.

Take a moment and savor that feeling because that feeling is more than just your heartbeat.

That feeling is your life.

Your life, your body, your soul holding hands with your internal metronome, beating against your chest and

God, how good does it feel to be alive?

Take your hand and feel that life in your chest.

Do you want to know how a Muslim heart beats?

Ba-bum, Ba-bum,

Want to know how a gay heart,

ba-bum,

A straight heart,

Ba-bum,

A Christian heart,

ba-bum,

A Jewish heart,

ba-bum,

A black heart,

ba-bum

A white heart,

ba-bum,

Our Hearts All Beat The Same.

We Are Not Monsters.

We Are Not Sinners.

We Are All Flesh.

We Are All Bone.

We Are All Pulse.
