Tragedy in Florida
This morning I woke up to the news that a Orlando, Florida night club called "The Pulse" is now the scene of the largest mass murder in American history.
A gunman, identified as Omar Mateen, opened fire with an automatic assault rifle and killed fifty victims and injured fifty three others.
I cannot tell you the profound sadness that I feel right now. So, so sad.
Reports says that the shooter's father reported that his son, Omar Mateen, was very angry when he say two men kissing.
How ironic, that an act of love would result in such a horrific act of hate.
I don't know why. I really don't have an answer to this evil.
Many times in my past I have frequented gay clubs like "The Pulse." These days, in my old age, I go to bed too early to attend such late night activities.
My heart goes out to the families of the victims.
So sad and horrible.
