ORLANDO LGBT COMMUNITY IN MOURNING

We woke up to the terrible news of a mass shooting in a local gay club: PULSE.

This started around 2am this morning. Lives have been lost, our community is in pain. Investigation still ungoing …. local police, FBI and other Federal Agents.

Sad days continued in this country.

20 dead people, 42 injured taken to local hospitals

All still developing!!

I have no adequate words.

As the morning continues, it all continues to sink in.

My heart hurts, my hands are shaky, my brain doesn’t want to believe.

Now its 50 killed … 53 wounded 

Reports say the worst mass shootings in the US to date.

We are now in a STATE OF EMERGENCY in Orlando.

Grief Counseling happening at the LGBT Center on Mills today.

Situation still developing!
