Remembering Our Dead

The people listed inside have three things in common…and maybe more.  First of all, they are all dead and have died since last November 20.  Secondly, they are all transwomen.  Thirdly, they died as a result of nothing more than intense hatred.  One only needs to survey the causes of death to verify that.  In many cases, the rage that the murderer must have had is evident in the number of stab wounds, the dismemberment or other mutilation evident on the bodies, or the execution that clearly had taken place (please note how many had been shot in the head).

I provide this list, cribbed from this site, not to be a downer…though it sure brings me down…but to honor their lives and the courage it took to live them.

Tomorrow is Transgender Day of Remembrance.  We will not forget.
