WHEN MEN WEAR SWORDS is a lament written in memory and mourning of the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida on June 12, 2016.

The title comes from a quote by Jude Morgan:

"....[he] wears a sword, they all wear swords, and...[we] know what happens when men wear swords and lose reason."

To a world where men can keep reason and need not bear arms.
