    my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Orlando. we are one family, together. i cannot offer much but i can offer my open heart and ears. if you need someone to talk to, please consider talking to me, even if you are not directly effected by this. there are a lot of emotions that surround this type of event and i understand if you’re deeply troubled by it, as i am. 

    if you are not comfortable talking to me, here are some other links:
    Donate to the victims
    Donate blood if you live in Orlando or FL
    . (EDIT as of 3:09PM EST: i have received information that the FDA still requires that donations by gay/bi sexually active men will not be accepted. If you are healthy and able to give blood and are type O, particularly O-, please donate.)
