I am sick with sadness over the massacre in Orlando. I don’t know how to begin to make sense of how we have allowed this event to happen. The only thing that seems to be clear about the motivations of the man who pulled the trigger is that he hated. The people who know him best say he hated. He hated people of color. He hated LGBTQ people. And that means he hated himself. Because we know that all hatred and violence comes from a false sense of separation from others.
