This morning we awoke to the news that another tragedy has played out in our country in the city of Orlando, Florida.  Less than a half hour drive from Walt Disney World, more than twenty of our fellow Americans were killed in yet another senseless act of violence.  At this time our concern must be with the victims and their families while we allow law enforcement agencies to do their job to determine the facts and identify those who committed this act of terror.

It is to early too assign blame and we should guard against vilifying groups of people or using this tragedy to push agendas.

In the hours and days ahead we will get more details and can more intelligently discuss what we need to do as a nation to stop these horrific incidents that play out far too often in our country.

I urge everyone to focus on providing support to the victims and law enforcement today.

My family and I will keep the victims and their families in our prayers.
