President Speaks on Orlando Shootings

Please watch or read
on the Orlando shootings

Let us strive to make
 a city free of hate and violence


  1. I have never been able to understand why some people feel that violence is a solution to any problem.

  2. People who commit violence on others will use ISIS or some other group to make excuses for their bigotry and hate. Islam is not a religion of hate. I'm a Christian and have read the Quran. It is very interesting and often beautiful reading. Maybe Trump and other Islamaphobes should read it before spouting their own form of hate and bigotry. Let's not forget that the first terrible act in Oklahoma City, that killed many including children, was caused by a very right wing Christian, not a follower of Islam.

    1. Well said Bob. I think it is very interesting to see the GOP expressing their condolences for a tragedy against the LGBT community when they have spent a great deal of time trying to legislate them out of existence. They also let the far right fringe elements within their party make extremely dangerous comments about the gay community - with no repercussions. While this terrible tragedy was carried out by a deranged member of the Muslim community, the GOP has some culpability in this (in my opinion) - they have failed to expel their fanatical members from the party and stood by silently as the match was lit. Now they have a fool heading heading their ticket for the White House and only themselves to blame. Karma really is a bitch. Sadly in a republic we could all end up paying the price if their clown is elected.
