which mass shooting anniversary falls on your birthday? Since that column, we’ve added countless more murders. If we keep going at this rate, at some point each of the 365 days will have been stained by the anniversary of a plague of gun violence that continues to grip America.My birthday is June 12.
And, this June 12 marks the fifth anniversary of the gruesome disaster at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando. Fifty people were killed that day, the second most lethal mass shooting in U.S.
history. It was a severe gut-punch to our community during a month that we claim as our own.For the last five years, I have often wondered how unwelcomed June 12 is for all of the loved ones who lost their lives that day at Pulse.
