The LGBT community has made massive strides in the past several years, with love winning above all in countless efforts for equality. The tragic events at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida remind us that we need to put love above all else and be there in support for humans on a human level, not just when tragic events occur but each and every day. #PrayForOrlando
What we currently know from the events of Sunday June 12, 2016 is that 49 lives have been lost, and 53 others were injured. The names of the victims are being publicized to gain knowledge about each and every life. The shooter details, including the name, are not being discussed on news outlets. More information about the victims can be found on the Human Rights Campaign website HERE.
The support from the LGBT community has been expressed nationwide, and in tremendous effort to shed light on this event and what can be done in support but also what can be done on an ongoing basis to keep events like this from happening. It goes without saying that thousands of others in the community have shown the same love and respect for the victims and their loved ones, as well as supporting the Go Fund Me account for the victim’s families and creating a general awareness of the change that needs to take place in society.
Here at Fertility SOURCE Companies, we express our deepest condolences to the loved ones of the victims of this senseless massacre. Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and families of the victims in Orlando. The LGBT community is near and dear to our hearts and we pride ourselves on the support and work that we do in the community to bring love to all men and women, creating families and bringing people together based on these principles. #LoveIsLove
