Remembering Orlando....this was originally posted on my Facebook page, but wanted to share my thoughts here too.
I believe this tragedy only needs two things said:
1. This is an American tragedy that was carried out by a terrorist. Doesn't matter what group, what affiliation...he carried out a tragic act against American citizens on American soil. Against the people in his own country.
2. 49 mothers lost their children that day and are now grieving!!! I have watched mothers cry and tell their stories. They are ALL mothers who now must suffer through without their children. I have lost a child and cannot imagine how this must feel knowing this happened in such a horrifying way.
Let's remember that we are ALL Americans fighting to retain and protect our country. Some of us have children who have stood up and answered the call or husbands, fathers , sisters, brothers.....we should all be outraged that one person chose to take the lives of these 49 victims. It will not say on their headstone what religion or political affiliation they had. It will just tell of the love of their families.
As Americans we need to stand up and be outraged that one of our own could do the unthinkable.
Pray for our country and those who have the responsibility to protect it. Pray for those mothers who are weeping for their lost.
