1606.12 I STAND WITH ORLANDO

Once again hate turns to violence and suffering. I once again don't have the words to express the sadness and anger I feel right now. 

This time Orlando USA is the place and the victims are innocent people out for a night out. The difference this time is that the victims belong to the LGBT community. My thoughts are with the victims, their families, survivors and the community. 

I will repeat my words from the Belgium attacks earlier this year... 
Now isn't the time to start laying blame against innocent people because of their religion or background. The perpetrators are a minority, we will only win if we don't give in to hate and turn on each other. We will win if we stay focused and get on with our lives. We owe it to the ones we lost today.
I stand with my brothers and sisters in Orlando.
