It tolls for thee

In memoriam to my gay brothers murdered in Orlando, FL

11 June 2016

Requiescat in pace

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main….

Each man’s death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

For Whom the Bell Tolls by John Donne, 1624.
