The Orlando Tragedy

Well, It was a sad weekend in America-Florida-where a man armed with a gun visited a gay nightclub in Florida and shot all the patrons who were partying and dancing at the Pulse Orlando Club!! After the shooting, It was believed that 50 people had died and many more were injured and sent to nearby hospitals to be treated. It was billed as the most horrific massacre to his American soil this past weekend!!
 The shooter was killed by authorities with many questions still left unanswered, as to why would someone take their lives of innocent people who happened to be Gay/Homosexual?  Some authorities question whether the shooter was unstable mentally or maybe it was religious or a hate crime.....but one thing is for sure, The shooter became enrages at the sight of seeing two men kissing on the streets of Miami in a previous month and his rage manifested until He could no longer hold it in and went on a shooting rampage at the Florida nightclub before being killed himself.
 The shooter's father commented and He described his son as “a very good and well-educated son with a wife and a child.”
    He said: “I am very sad and I’ve announced this to the American people as well. Why did he do this act during this holy month of Ramadan. On the topic of being hamjensbazi, punishment and the things that they do, God will give the punishment."  To read more click here

Also, President Obama made an announcement to the world regarding the Orlando Shooting.
President Obama said the shooting deaths of 50 people at an Orlando nightclub appears to have all the hallmarks of the San Bernardino shooting last December: A terrorism attack inspired by — but not necessarily coordinated with — the Islamic State terror group.
   And like the shooting spree that killed 14 people at a San Bernardino disabilities center, there's no evidence thus far that the Orlando attack was part of a larger plot, Obama said.
    "At this stage we see no clear evidence that he was directed externally," Obama told reporters in the Oval Office Monday. "It does appear that at the last minute he announced allegiance to ISIL, but there's no evidence so far that he was, in fact, directed by ISIL."

It was a sad tragedy that shouldn't have happened and this just reinforced the need for gun control, Mental Health counseling and Religious tolerance here in the States. When will we as a people realize that we all need to get along even with our differences and lifestyle choices? 

Also, In other news, another incident was about to happen at the California Pride Festival before police thwarted it before it got out of hand. Thanks to the California police for acting so swiftly and quell it before it became out of control. 
   i just don't know what to say with all this Hate in America? We need more psychologists to help these people deal with their mental issues cause it's a lot of crazy people wandering the streets in today's world.  I pray that we find Peace before it is too late!! 

On that note, I need to go see what I can get into today. Hope all have a Blessed Monday and stay safe in this crazy world cause you never know what will happen when out in the streets.
