This. There really aren't words to express the tragedy involved here.

I keep on trying to find the words. Like, I'm frozen.

I can see it in my head. It's not like I was there or something. But I know what every square foot of that building looks like. It's like I know it happened. I know the security flaws of that place. Or how someone would do what that monster did.

I can't unsee it. But I wasn't there.

My words don't seem to be making any sense. I don't know.

The father of the shooter who killed 50 people at a gay nightclub in Florida said his son became enraged recently when he saw two men kissing — and that may have been what sparked the worst mass shooting in US history.

Mir Seddique, shooter Omar Seddique Mateen’s father, insisted to NBC News that the slaughter at Pulse in Orlando “has nothing to do with religion.”

“We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident. We weren’t aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country,” Seddique said.

Law enforcement sources identified Mateen, 29 of Fort Pierce, as the gunman.

Mateen was a U.S. citizen with no apparent criminal history, was born to Afghan parents in 1986 and was living in Port St. Lucie, according to multiple media reports.

Insanely violent homophobia has nothing to do with religion? That one is a bit difficult to believe.

It bears repeating that after San Bernardino, Republicans blocked a bill that would have made it harder for people on the FBI terrorist watch list to buy guns.

I received this photo from a friend. There's not much that can be said or done to make anything better right now. But, maybe we can look at what is right and just appreciate what is right.

This is a line of good people who are donating blood for the injured today.

I'm actually super afraid of giving blood. I don't show it, but I am. But I think today might be the first time I do that.

More and more appears to be a hate crime by an unstable person, not anything related to Islamic terrorism.
