Christopher Andrew Leinonen, 32, was with his boyfriend, Juan Guerrero, 22, who was also killed

Since it's the anniversary of the #Pulse massacre, I've got a few thoughts. Like thousands of other Floridians, I waited for hours to give blood. I found out later that the @my1blood employee who was handling donor relations where I was had lost a friend in the attack.
The @my1blood employees that day were heroes because they had to get through that awful day and work hours of overtime collecting blood while dealing with their own emotions while everyone was collectively in shock over what happened.
There have been more than enough thinkpieces written about race and the Pulse shooting, but I will say that both that day and the vigils in my community, it was visibly queer people of all races and het Latinx families with young kids who were represented.

The damage a bullet does to a 1 year old brain as it ricochets back and for. The guilt the family feels. The sadness we all feel.
