I woke this morning to news of the senseless shooting by yet another loon, which as I write this there are at least 49 dead and 53 wounded. A well armed individual, with both a long gun and pistol, entered a popular gay nightclub, Pulse, in Orlando, Florida. The NBC News Special hinted that it might have been influenced by the shooter’s gay hatred.
We need to wait to condemn people until we know all of the facts but the simple thing is that there is no reason to shoot defenseless people. I have a lot of LGBT friends and know they are often persecuted by people, who are offended by those who are different from themselves.
Those of us, who I consider “normal”, the motives to drive a person to randomly kill or maim over 100 people, are difficult to fathom.
My thanks go out to the lines of people, who have lined up to donate blood.
