“I am heartbroken by the horrific and senseless tragedy in Orlando. My heart goes out to the loved ones of those lost and wounded at this incredibly difficult time.

I offer my deepest condolences to those in the LGBT community, who appear to have been the target of this brutal hate crime.

In such times of tragedy, we must remember to place blame on the perpetrator of the hateful act, and not an entire religion.”
