I’m still trying to wrap my head around the absolutely tragic events that have happened in Orlando this week.
Christina Grimmie, the tragic Pulse massacre, and little Lane Graves and his family after the horrifying Disney alligator attack.
My heart hurts.
My head is swarming with a million different things I want to say, that I want to post about. I can’t get the words out.
I’m a third-generation Central Floridian. Both my grandpa and dad are from Sanford. I grew up in Apopka. And now I’m raising my own family in the Winter Garden area. This is my home. This is my city.
We are hurting, I am hurting. But we are STRONG.
My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with the victims, families, first responders, and amazing hospital crew during the hardest time our city has faced.
