Editor:

I’m reaching out with profound sadness at the news of another senseless act of violence in Orlando, Florida, targeting gays and lesbians at a gay bar. But this attitude of hate and murderous action could be aimed at any group, and should cause each of us to feel personally involved in the mourning and in the resolve to find solutions to this violence. Hate crime against gays? Racist act? Terrorist inspired? Mental illness issue? Personal confusion turned against others? Too easy access to assault weapons? Perhaps some of all of those? This is a complex and difficult case, but we cannot let it pass and merely get filed as a statistic of how many killed and wounded. As a community, we must condemn the attack, and take action.
