I noticed that local Minneapolis landmarks were rainbow colors in support of the victims. This got me thinking of the People Magazine article recapping Jimmy Fallon’s words about the Orlando shooting. I think he really summed it up well.
“This country was built on the idea that we do not all agree on everything. That we are a tolerant, free nation that encourages debate, free thinking, believing – or not – in what you choose,” he continued.
“We need to get back to being brave enough to accept that we have different opinions, and that’s okay,” he said. “Because that’s what America is built on. The idea that we can stand up and speak our minds and live our lives and not be punished for that, or mocked on the internet. Or killed by someone you don’t know.”
“This was just one bad guy here. Forty-nine good people, and one bad guy. There will always be more good than evil,” he said. “So keep loving each other, keep respecting each other and keep on dancing.”
Thank you Jimmy Fallon. We all need to keep caring and not get jaded by the bad in the world. We will continue to overcome!
