I woke up the morning of the shooting to see what happened on the news. This is just a day after Christina Grimmie was shot in front of an Orlando theatre. All I could do was watch the TV and cry for these poor people and their families. The worst part was that some of the families had to wait all day to find out about their loved ones. While I didn't know anyone that was in the club that night, I still take this attack personally. It could have been one of my gay friends or family members. It could have happened anywhere. It could have happened to any of us. It still impacts us all. I have one friend who is a news anchor. Most of us can turn the news off when it becomes too much. She must keep reliving it all day and night as she reports it. I have another friend who works with the medical examiners office. He had to deal with the destruction this man left in his wake. Attending to the lives that are now only remembered as sad thoughts of what could have been.

As I type this, more horrible news in Orlando. A two year old child was dragged into a lake by a gator near the Grand Floridian on Disney property. This city needs a break! We are strong, but come on now! Prayers for this baby and family.
