So far, the media has done a really good job of finding everything out about the shooter who murdered 49 people at Pulse in Orlando. The media has given us important information like how he was probably also a self-hating close case, but this morning I also read some shit about how when he was 8 years old, he didn’t like to sit and watch TV. That explains everything! Well last night, Anderson Cooper stepped away from talking about the Orlando mass murderer and took 7 minutes out of his broadcast to name the victims and tell their stories.
Journalists usually seem to keep their emotions set to “serious” when covering the news, but while reading all of the names, Anderson had to press pause a few times to keep from crying.
The Daily Beast also has the names of the 49 victims and their stories. It was hard to read, but I felt like I needed to. And if you’re at work and want your co-workers to still believe that you’re a cold-hearted, emotionless robot, read the names in the bathroom by yourself and loudly play a Creed song so nobody will dare come in.
