Orlando shooting

I was going to post something else today, but I just don’t feel I can schedule a normal post the day after a terrorist attack here in my own country. On Sunday morning, a man who “made a pledge of allegiance to so-called Islamic State while speaking” with the police killed 49 people and injured 53 others at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida (quotes and stats from BBC News).

People will be going back and forth for weeks discussing why this happened and all the motives and reasons that went into it, but what it boils down to is this: a man with evil in his heart killed people. Whatever our thoughts on the religion of the attacker or the sexual orientation of his victims, this was a tragedy that should break our hearts.
