Orlando, by Wash Silk

My hope is that people come together as a community to mourn and heal, to create connections and recognize that we have the power to support each other through this hurt.  During this Pride Month and the Holy Month of Ramadan, may we come together as a diverse, beautiful community to foster strength and healing in the face of this tragedy.
