Six years ago 49 people were gunned down in a mass shooting in Orlando’s Pulse nightclub.
University of Central Florida, who lost two of its own, remembers and honors them. This is Millican Hall on the main campus near Alafaya and University Blvd, dressed up in Pride colors.
NOTE: all photos I took from the internet.
I hope to go there this Tuesday after my OBGYN-oncologist appointment, which is in the same neighborhood and get some of my photos.
I will never forget that morning waking up, opening my CNN app and seeing the horrible headlines.
A senseless tragedy. Forty-nine people murdered for just having a great, happy time with their friends.
More gun restrictions are needed.
Mental health care is critically important. The stigma needs to end.

I think it’s more than just mental health; it’s the culture of hate that these gunners end up in that warps their sense of humanity.

It IS the culture, but part of the culture reinforces the stigma of surrounding mental health issues. It’s a giant vicious, ugly cycle.
