As I sit today and reflect on the mass shooting in Orlando and the response from our President and his party, I am beyond disgusted. We now know that the gunman was an ISIS affiliate. We know this because both he and ISIS confirmed it through the 911 call and the media respectively. We know that he was an Islamic Terrorists from the so-called Junior Varsity.

Just a note to address the rapid increase of racial tensions in our little square of the world called racism, segregation, and separation: There are two sides to this story. We all had friends from…
Diversity, Acceptance, and Tolerance
These are great ideas that all people should aspire to integrate into their everyday lives. Unfortunately, this will not happen according to some.
