Workplace shooting in Orlando
« on: June 05, 2017, 06:15:19 pm »
We had another mass shooting here in Orlando this morning.  A disgruntled employee who was fired 2 months ago from an awning company returned this morning and killed 5 of his former co-workers before killing himself just as the police arrived.  Next Monday is the 1 year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub terror attack.
We will never forget the events of 9-11!!  USA!! USA!!

I heard about that.  I'm glad you're safe, DF, (and a number of my friends in the area have checked in safely as well, for which I'm also glad and grateful) but I'm sad for the people who aren't and for their loved ones.  It's terrible that people do these things to other people.  :'(
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

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.)

Prayers for all involved.

Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)
