Notes: The number of the #OrlandoMassacre victims has been corrected; it is now reflected as 49 excluding the hater / terrorist attacker to the #LGBTQs in Pulse.
The despicable shooting at the #Pulse Nightclub in #Orlando is the latest #hatecrime and #terror towards the #LGBTQ community. When will this #hate STOP!
There are no better words to describe our thoughts to the victims’ families and prayers to all brothers and sisters who perished. Our continuing prayers too for the injured that they will recover from this traumatic experience.

“This is a specially heart breaking day for all of our friends, our fellow Americans lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender; the shooter targeted a night club where people came together to be with friends, to dance and to sing, and to lift, the place where they were attacked was more than night club as a place of solidarity and empowerment; where people come together to raise awareness, to speak their minds and to advocate their civil rights.
This is a sobering reminder, that attacks on any American regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation is an attack on all of us, and on the fundamental values of equality and dignity that define us as a country. And no act of hate or terror will ever change who we are or the values that make us as Americans.” – President Barack Obama
