The sound of the gun shots
Overpowered the music
The trembling of bodies
Rivaled the thump of the bass
The fear in the air
Out weighed the excitement of the night

No reason will make sense
No words can change the events

Hate was the impetus
Hate brought on by ignorance
Hate of what


The heroism of strangers
Overpowered the evil done that night
The lines forming to give aide
Stretched further then the lines of the haters
The compassion of a community
Will help heal the wounded

We will no longer put up with the hate
We will combat it with tolerance
We will beat it with love

Love of freedom
Love for friends
Love of life
Love conquers all
