Tied To Today: Orlando

At the time of this writing (early afternoon, Sunday 6/12), we are still learning the horrific details from Orlando about the senseless mass shooting at the Pulse Orlando nightclub.  It appears that a gunman with possible ISIS sympathies entered the club and in the end, at least 50 people were killed and 53 more were wounded.  As we  wait to learn more about the motives behind this horrific crime, I cannot help but be reminded of an excellent podcast that I listened to just last week that celebrated Gay Rights and took a look into the long and complicated history that goes along with that topic.  In times like these when attacks are meant to cause fear, it is important that we pause to remember and to celebrate the lives of those lost and the issues they held dear.  Check it out at the History Buffs Podcast.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
