In the wake of the massacre in Orlando, please take a moment to thank the police, EMS, hospital personnel, other first responders, and volunteers who embody the heroism and strength we all aspire to possess. They marched into that hell to try and keep the death toll from being higher and to make sure no other monsters were lurking in the night. THANK YOU, Orlando.  Also: it was only the police in Santa Monica who stopped another man armed with explosives and ammunition heading for LA Pride. Great work and THANK YOU as well. ‪#‎PrideLA2016‬ #‎Pride2016‬. ‪#‎PulseOrlando

This is a not a tragedy. It is a mass killing. Until we know more, let’s focus on supporting the heroes, saving lives, and coming to grips with the situation.
