Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Orlando. We saw the news online and have access to BBC on TV. Our Sicilian family also told us. Everyone is horrified and sad.
On BBC, we saw that there were large vigils in Berlin and London, where the crowds waved rainbow flags. The Sydney Harbor Bridge and Paris Eiffel Tower both changed their lights to rainbow colors. One thing I have learned from our travels – we are all in this world together, and everyone is more similar than you might think. No one should feel afraid to be who they are.
Our prayers are with the victims and their families.
