Today we passed a grim milestone: 600,000 lives lost from COVID-19. My heart goes out to all those who’ve lost a loved one. I know that black hole that seems to consume you, but a time will come when their memory brings a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eyes.

49 innocent lives were taken at #PulseNightclub five years ago – a devastating event at the intersection of gun violence and anti-LGBTQ+ violence. As a city and country we need to end gun violence and foster inclusivity. Today I’m thinking of the loved ones of those we lost.

Five years ago, 49 LGBTQ+ people and allies were enjoying an evening out at Pulse Nightclub. And then, in an instant, they were gone. Today, we remember those who died and their loved ones—and we recommit to building a world free from gun violence.

We honor those members of our military who sacrificed their lives in order to defend our freedoms. We owe these heroes—and their loved ones—everything. Not just on Memorial Day. Every day. pic.twitter.com/bAbl6cxxw1
