Re: Orlando Attack

MODERATOR NOTE:

This thread is intended to support members who have been affected, directly or indirectly, by the Orlando attack.


It is not the place to argue about the religious, political, or other motives of people who would perpetrate such heinous acts against the LGBTQ community or any other group of human beings.


Please heed our site guidelines:

Re: Orlando Attack

This honestly breaks my heart for not only the victims but anyone whom now lives in fear to be whom they truly are. It's really sad the judgment that has been received all over social medal and the hateful comments I've seen as well.

I find it rather concerning that many traditions claim to love all people equally yet many individuals interpret their views differently and feel they are justified by condemning a person for loving another. It baffles me

Re: Orlando Attack

A little over 20 years ago there was an GLBT club here that my daughter and her then-girlfriend sometimes visited.

She and I have both been pretty well shaken up over someone targeting this group two decades later.

It seems that some people refuse to give up their discrimination and hate despite the new laws.

Re: Orlando Attack

I have no sympathy for the killer at all. My sympathies lie with the victims and their families.

Next they'll be claiming the killer had a mental disorder which will then bring out all the "mentally ill people will all go kill someone" brigade.

Re: Orlando Attack

That's already been claimed in several places I've seen. It's always what's claimed.

Re: Orlando Attack

I used to live in the Orlando area (to the north in Seminole County, this was south of downtown). I hated every minute of it, but I think it's better now. The one thing they can't fix is the climate though.

My mom's friend's daughter works at a blood bank there and has been working almost nonstop since this event occurred.

Re: Orlando Attack

I worry about the bars, clubs, restaurants and other venues here in New York, both gay and straight. Fortunately our police department has a rather robust intelligence capacity to uncover such plots before they happen, unlike most other police departments. Unfortunately, I think that capacity is being degraded of late.

Re: Orlando Attack

The good news is there was such a turn out to give Blood the Blood Bank in PBC was turning people away and asking they come back next week. It was nice to see lines and lines of people willing to help.

My late father lived there years and years ago, he said he had to come back to the NE because he missed the four seasons. He said it was too weird having Christmas carolers singing Dashing through the snow while wearing bathing suits.
