It is with the saddest hearts that we look upon the day today. The events of Orlando, FL in the last few days have shocked our nation and the world. We wanted to offer a few simple words of acknowledgement and support for the family and friends of those that tragically and violently lost their lives in the wee hours of the morning. Unfortunately, this is not the first time we face terrorism in our country and it certainly will not be last. No matter what steps are taken in either direction, there will always be some extremists that believe hate is the only answer to our vast differences. We know different, however we can say that it is not through hate that we can truly affect change but through love and acceptance.
As an organization with members across the entire Earth, we share in the grief of those loved ones that are heartbroken and sit in despair. We can only hope that together we show that where evil means to divide us, it has failed miserably for we only come closer and more united in face of great adversity. For all of us across the world that call TLP home, we can only offer up some of our time, our condolences, and our willingness to help.
We stand with Equality Florida in their efforts to raise funds to help and assist the families of those we lost. Please visit their site and give what you can; time, blood, money, supplies. Everything is needed and much appreciated.
