ORLANDO

It's raining at the farm, which today, somehow seems appropriate...



"...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 a nation."

               - President Barack Obama, 6/12/2016

  3. I feel numb. I don't understand how someone in a non-war situation can commit such an atrocious act. When will it stop?

    1. Fiona, Islam is at war with us. This guy pledged his loyalty to ISIS before he started shooting. This is not a non-war situation.....it is the shot across the bow. It will not stop....it will only get worse. It was Islamic Terrorism, period.

    2. I understand Fiona, so sad and unexplainable. And Tewshooz, I think she might have meant like some event in a large war like you might see on the battlefield but as you said, war is changing. And of course now we don't even know if he even had that as a motive. Just so sad. Thank you both for your comments and thoughts!

  4. Thoughts and prayers go out to the families of all victims that where killed or injured

    The Office of Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent a notice out that all flags must be lowered to half-staff until June 16 "in memory of the victims in the attack."

    1. Thank you. Our office building lowered its flags. I saw them up at a car dealership and called and told them. They apologized and lowered them today.

  5. This is more than terrorism. This is an ugly crime of hate that leave all the world bleeding from the hearts.

  6. My heart aches, my soul is weary and my emotions are tattered. My thoughts and prayers for healing and recovery to all Orlando victims. And I truly dislike that word--victim. Our country, like much of the rest of the world is being torn asunder. I ask the question as so many others, WHY? Why is there so much hate, anger and violence? Let us hope we can find a peaceful resolution to overcome these obstacles and be united as humans.

  11. 1st Man,

    This was terrible. I hate to say it, unless we get control of the real problem were going to see more of this.
    Prayers to those who lost their lives, and prayers to their families.
