For the last 36 I hours I did not know what I would say when it came time for me to talk about Orlando.
I didn’t know what I would say.
And then my mom called and I knew exactly what to do.

Because she called me to tell me I had to stay inside because she needed me to be safe.
It’s ridiculous, sure.
But she’s my mom.
Any mom who loves their kid signs up to protect them from anything and everything as long as they live.

That’s all she wanted to do.

But it was when she asked me to do it.
That I realized.

I had to use my voice.
To come out and say, love has to win.
In the face of evil, love will win.
