    🎵I've Been Watching The News And Seeing All This Hate😢

    🎵I've been watching the news and seeing all this hate

    The new song to benefit the victims of the Pulse nightclub shootings

    Will Wells came on Twitter only to say, "Fresh out of words tonight." Punctuated with a broken heart
    emoji.

    I'm sad that I am not the only one struggling to find words tonight. Two more reports of people killed by police because of the color of their skin, Philando Castile and Alton Sterling. When I can't find my voice, I will turn to my songwriters and borrow theirs.

    Probably one of the more touching posts was from Julian Lennon. Julian's father, John , was a member of The Beatles and John was assassinated by a gunman in Manhattan, New York on December 8, 1980.


    Julian went to Facebook and simply wrote,"A Time For Change...if ever there was one."

    Aja Volkman wrote on Twitter," I wanna take my family and fly to the moon. I can't live in a world where we kill each other. I can't explain it to my 3 year old. So sad.

    Beyonc'e stopped her concert tonight and held a moment of silence. Projected behind her were the names of recent victims of violence. She also wrote this amazing piece...

    "We are sick and tired of the killing of young men and women in our communities.

    It is up to us to take a stand and demand that they 'STOP KILLING US!'

    We don't need sympathy.

    We need everyone to respect our lives.

    We're going to stand up as a community and fight against anyone who believes that murder or any violent action by those who swore to protect us should consistently go unpunished.

    These robberies of lives make us feel hopeless and helpless. But we have to believe that we are fighting for the rights of the next generation, for the next young men and women who believe in good. This is a human fight. No matter your race, gender or sexual orientation. This is a fight for anyone who feels marginalized, who is struggling for freedom and human rights.

    This is not a plea to all police officers but toward any human being who fails to value life. The war on people of color and all minorities needs to be over.

    Fear is not an excuse.

    Hate will not win.

    We all have the power to channel our hate and frustration into action. We must use our voices to contact the politicians and legislators in our district and demand social and judicial changes.

    While we pray for the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, we will also pray for an end to this plague of injustice in our communities."

    Dan Reynolds added his voice just a few hours ago.

    "So many lives lost. So much hate. Racism. Sexism. Bigotry.
    WE ARE ALL FROM THE SAME ENERGY AND LIGHT. WE KILL ONE. WE KILL OURSELVES.

    WE SPEAK ILL OF ONE, WE SPEAK ILL OF OURSELVES.

    WE JUDGE ONE, WE JUDGE OURSELVES.

    I hurt for my brothers and sisters around the world who's lives have been taken this last month. I am you and you are me.

    I have been dealt an easy hand. And some of you have been dealt heavy crosses to bear. I only wish I could bear it with you.

    Let us learn and grow together. This generation will be greater than the last. WE WILL NOT STAND FOR PREJUDICE AND HATE.

    ONE LOVE."

    So sad to see our nation become so divided.... why worry about the terrorists when our fellow country men are killing each other? Why all the hate? Are we really that different? When I see people at the store I just see people. I don't care about their sex, religion, sexual preference, color, weight, height (wait tall people are really cool!).... I just see people! The only people I do not like are those who are assholes and rude to someone else because of those reasons. Now not only are two men dead but now cops are also dead or injured. You cannot judge a whole group by one bad person from a group, race, or profession! What is going on???

    I vote Dan Reynolds for president, he knows how to spread love and joy across the masses!!!

    I think that hate is easy because once you divide people it is easy to continue the cycle. Love is more difficult. Love requires work. Love requires empathy and understanding and forgiveness. Hate is just attacking anything you disapprove of or don't understand.
    Like Donnie Osmond, ��I'm a soldier of love.
