    Yeah, that was really concerning to me. You'd think Orlando would be more on top of that. Imagine if something happened at one of the parks or something.

    right, and I think that causes people to think irrationally. They're upset, angry, confused, etc. and so they tend to lean towards the first irrational extreme thing they think will help. For instance, banning muslim immigration or banning all "assault type" weapons, regardless of what that actually means. Nothing good comes from a gut reaction to an event.

    I don't think any city can really prepare for 100+ victims on top of normal care. Idk about them but we do mass casualty training all the time, but having 100 ambulances available to transport isn't... It isn't apart of that. There is field triaging that happens.

    It's not really concerning to me that enough ambulances weren't available, but it really put into perspective how bad it was. That was the first video I saw this morning, victims being carried off in the backs of trucks.

    My sister lives less than 10 minutes from that night club. I'm just so sad and tired of this. I'm tired of the same rhetoric that gets tossed around after yet another mass shooting and how there's been no meaningful action. There HAS to be some middle ground that we can all agree on. Doing nothing is not an option anymore.

    Yeah that is a load for any hospital. This whole thing is sickening.

    DF & I know some people who live in a suburb of Orlando, and I know one of them might've gone to that nightclub that night, so I texted him and left a voicemail when I heard about it, just to see if he was okay. He didn't get back to me for hours. Apparently everybody else he knows did the same thing, and he was at work Sunday morning. He said later his phone was blowing up with messages, and he'd forgotten to fully charge it Saturday night. He said he did go there but left way before the shooting started. The whole thing is still such a shock.

    I was at work and wasn't able to really follow the news closely. So so sad and horrific. We have to find someway to stop the radicalization of these people. Tanks, guns and jets just can't stop this stuff. I don't have a solution but we sure need to figure one out.

    Very tragic incident. I'm sorry that the great city of Orlando had to experience something of that magnitude. My prayers go out to all the local establishments, universities and colleges, and tourist attractions that had to view all that bad publicity in such a great city.
