Mass Shooting in Orlando, Florida
« on: June 12, 2016, 10:54:00 am »
There has been a horrific mass shooting in a nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  At last report, there were 50 dead and 53 wounded.  Derynifanatic64 sent me an email stating that he and his family are all safe  (he lives in the Orlando area), and I'm three hours' drive away from the Orlando area anyway, so hopefully none of the denizens of Rhemuth Castle have been directly affected.  That being said, this is an awful attack, and prayers/good energy/etc. are certainly in order.

Thank you.

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Hi everyone.  This has been an horrible weekend here.  Just 24 hours earlier, a woman who appeared on "The Voice" show was gunned down after performing at a concert.  And now 50 people are dead (not counting the scumbag) and 53 other people are now fighting for their lives.  As DesertRose said, I and all family who live here are safe.

Praying for all involved in both of those tragic events.   :'(

Prayers for all involved.

And for an end to the intolerance and hatred that seems to be gripping our world.
"All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts."

My thoughts go out to all of the survivors, and to the families of those who did not.  This sort of thing has to stop, and stop NOW.

Glad that you and your family are all right and safe, Deryni Fanatic.

But what a nightmare for those who were killed or injured inside the Pulse on Sunday.  And the poor families are going to feel these terrible losses for the rest of their lives.

The Pulse nightclub has been returned to its owners and the area has been completely reopened.  Pulse has yet to reopen.  There are a large number of people who stop by to pay their respects.  Sadly, someone had the nerve to break in.  No one has been arrested so far.  But we shall persevere.  WE ARE ORLANDO STRONG!!

There has been an update on the Pulse nightclub massacre here in Orlando.  The widow of the shooter Omar Mateen has been arrested in California on suspicion of knowing of her husband's plans beforehand and for providing assistance to ISIS.
