My heart is broken for the families and friends of the 50 plus victims in the Orlando, Florida shooting, which took place at 2 am est today. 53 others are wounded, some with life threatening injuries. My thoughts and prayers are with them all.
At 6 pm est tonight the Governor Rick Scott called for a moment of silence to remember those tragically killed today, as well as those fighting for their lives from their injuries and those who were not critically injured too.
He asked us to pray for the family and friends of the over 100 people injured and killed by the “American” gunman. Also we should pray for the gunman’s family and friends, as they too have lost a family member today.
Please also pray for the Orlando community, Florida and the LGBT community, all who were affected deeply by this tragic and senseless shooting.
I have friends and possibly family members who are gay, lesbian and transgender and respect their decisions to be happy and enjoy their lifestyle, in a peaceful environment.
How do we come together as a community, a state, a world, a society to stop these mass shootings from happening again and again?
How do we get our elected officials, the police, FBI, Home Land Security and others responsible for protecting us, to do THEIR JOB?
FBI agents knew about 911, Boston Bombing and other terrorist attacks before they happened, however nothing was done to prevent it.
This coward was an America born and raised child to Afghanistan parents, yet he took American lives. The FBI had him in their radar, his employer said he talked about ISIS and his disapproval of LGBT community, yet nothing was done about it.
WAKE UP AMERICA, we are at war in our own homeland!!
Prayers to all involved by this horrific event!
