The next day, 50 people were murdered at Pulse nightclub in Orlando Florida. Omar Mateen, the 29-year-old assailant, was said to be a regular at the nightclub. Mateen held the survivors hostage, and was subsequently killed by police. It is unfortunate that people like Loibl and Mateen harbor so much hatred in their hearts.

Eddie Justice was one of the many people partying at Pulse night club on June 11th. Who would’ve ever thought a night out to celebrate and rejoice in your identity could end in death? Eddie texted his mother frightened telling her he loved her and that he was going to die. The 29-year-old accountant’s text messages to his mother left America heart broken. No mother deserves to bury her child.

We are praying for peace and unity in America, “the land of the free.” June 11th will forever be a sad day for many of us. #GodBlessAmerica
