Mir Seddique, Mateen’s father told NBC News, that his son saw two men kissing in Miami a couple of months ago and this angered him, adding that it had ‘nothing to do with religion’.

US president Barack Obama has said the nightclub shooting in Orlando was an ‘act of terror’ and an ‘act of hate’.

He said the FBI is investigating the massacre as an act of terrorism, and added that no effort will be spared to determine whether the shooter was affiliated with terrorist groups.

‘This is a sobering reminder that attacks on any American regardless or race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation is an attack on all of us and the fundamental values and dignity that define us as a country,” he added.

‘This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, in a house of worship or in a movie theater or in a nightclub.

‘We have to decided if that is the type of country we want to be. To actively to do nothing is a decision as well.’

It Is What It Is


~~June 12, 2016~~ 


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!
