Statement about the Orlando Terrorist Attack

Our thoughts and prayers are with our fellow Floridians in Orlando as we deal with yet another radical-Islamic terrorist attack. Right now is not the time for political posturing; rather it’s time for us to close ranks as Floridians and Americans and be there for each other. My family and I hope and pray the families of the victims, and those injured who survived, find comfort and strength from all of us who are here for them.

We also offer our gratitude to the brave first-responders and medical personnel. They risked their lives to save others and we stand in awe of their commitment.

May God bless them, the state of Florida and the United States of America—GBA, sjk
