Local reaction to Orlando shooting

“This is a heartbreaking day all around, for the LGBTQ community and for all Americans. Moments like these remind us that we are all in this together, ‘tied in a single garment of destiny,’ as Dr. King described. ‘Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.’ As our hearts and prayers go out to the victims in Orlando, as well as to their families and friends, we must come together and pledge to work for the dignity and equality of all Americans, and to find sensible and reasonable solutions to end the gun violence that takes far too many precious lives in our country.”
