So very sad that anyone’s family had to experience death at the hands of this mad man. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s something we can ever change. It’s part of the fabric of this country.
A gay man was killed in the mass shooting in Las Vegas, it has emerged.
Cameron Robinson, 28, was shot dead on Sunday night while with his boyfriend Bobby Eardley, 36.
Bobby took shrapnel to the back as gunman Stephen Paddock killed at least 59 people and injured another 527 in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
It’s been nearly a year and this heartbreaking story lingers. 😦 Any one of us could’ve been in that situation. Always be thankful for your familial and friendly support if you are fortunate enough to have it.
The news had to hit hard. For those families who waited all day after news of the Pulse shooting first broke, the confirmation process moved at a painfully slow pace. Many parents had to wait more than 24 hours to find out for certain why their child would not pick up the phone and verify they were OK. The loved ones of the 49 killed that night learned heartbreaking news that suddenly shifted their emotion from worry to sorrow and redirected their energy toward funeral plans.
But one father greeted news a different way, not by weeping for his son but in anger toward a child he refused to accept. Why? Because the child was gay. The father wouldn’t even take the body from the morgue.
I understand that the majority of those who died or were injured in this tragic event were of Hispanic blood, but this is not any form of respect for those who died. I hope that UNIVISION reconsiders its decision.
The Univision television network has been massively criticised over plans to air a detailed re-enactment of the Pulse nightclub shooting which killed 49 and injured more than 50 more.
An upcoming episode of the show ‘Crónicas De Sábado’, plans to use actors to create a detailed re-enactment of the most deadly mass shooting in US history.
You are seven levels of stupid if you’re going to announce your intentions far in advance and quite publicly so the police and your target can prepare for whatever you think you’re going to do.
Police in a Fort Lauderdale, Fla. suburb are looking for a man with an extensive criminal record who posted a frightening threat on Facebook: “It’s time to clean up Wilton Manors from all you AIDS-infested losers,” and “None of you deserve to live. If you losers thought the Pulse Nightclub shooting was bad, wait ’til you see what I’m planning for Labor Day.”
My Lovelies, break out your case of tissue before you watch this. It’s so simple, yet so profound and beautiful.
In case you missed it or, like me, are too old to stay up that late, 😉 here’s Jimmy Fallon’s speech on the gay nightclub massacre.
