The World Mourns For Orlando As Another Senseless Massacre Takes Place | orlando

Last night around 2 a.m. Eastern Time a gunman walked into Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and opened fire. Once again those of us in the United States woke up to more horrible gun violence in the news, and we have spent the day taking in this somber reality. The death toll is currently at 50, with the shooter not included in that gross number, and authorities have the daunting task of going through the terrifying scene of the crime to pick up the pieces and try to put the puzzle of this terrorist act together. This is the biggest massacre to take place on US soil, something that hurts the soul to type out at any point in time, let alone an article with 24 hours of the event taking place.

Around the world, people have their heads hung low, both in remembrance and in unbelievable sadness. Politicians, celebrities and every-day folk are once again uniting under the rainbow-colored flag, but also under horrible circumstances.

We are still reeling from the news out Orlando and can only hope those who are still injured pull through this dark time and recover quickly. There are not enough condolences we can send to the friends and family of the victims, but do know you have been and will continue to be in our thoughts and hearts.
