Overwhelmed by Orlando

I, like many of us, am overwhelmed by the senseless loss of life in a hate crime against LGBTI people in Orlando. People who were just out partying. As a friend of mine said, people like me. 

I quickly found out that a friend and colleague who lives near there is safe and well. 

Another dear friend and colleague who lives there - I don't know if he is alive or dead. He is not responding to my messages. I hope he is OK. 

My thoughts and prayers are going to the friends and families cut down in yet the latest massacre in the US, of people again targeted by hate. I cannot imagine the grief that you are going through. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. 

Tomorrow, Tuesday, at 6pm I will be joining others at a candlelight vigil at Reddacliff Place at Brisbane Square.
