49 killed and 49 birds

Forty nine is a lot of people to fly up for a decision on afterlife,
reincarnation etc. The angels are busy with that one!
Boom you are a bird for now. Well life is not the end anyway!
It's hard to look at the nonlinear when you are linear
on the ground. But it's clear to me and too far cool to not say something!

~~~~~49 birds appear over Orlando shooting victims memorial
When we're confronted with something as tragic, as difficult to cope with,
as the Orlando shooting, some of us will look for solace in the divine.
And in those moments, the little things -- ones that don't lend themselves to 
ready explanations can take on great significance.
This is the story of one such moment.
 
As the names of the 49 victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting were being 
read at a vigil in Orlando, a photographer noticed something up above: 
A flock of birds flying by. The victims: 49 lives cut short
She snapped a quick photo. But it wasn't until she counted the birds in her frame 
that she was truly surprised: There were 49.
"I then showed everyone around me and had them count," she said.
"We were all stunned."
