    That Orlando Massacre hit too close to my home

    It is very sad in what happened to /in Orlando...But times have totally changed and there are people out there who want to kill for the sake of killing....I don't think they care half the time who just to inflict pain upon another human being.....Sad but true....We the People have to start standing up and looking at who is actually doing this and try to end it before it even has a chance to start. We need to reevaluate who we let into this country and who is already here, checked out by the FBI etc. Something is seriously wrong if someone is checked out twice and still was able to get a job carrying a gun and causing the worst massacre on record.

    That Orlando Massacre hit too close to my home

    I've seen the video Amanda took and snap chatted to her friend. He was waiting hours on Facebook to hear from her and she was finally pronounced as one of those that died. I have now read many articles from someone who was shot 12 times and is recovering that the police and media are covering up that there was actually two other shooters that got away. They are covering it up to not start a panic but I personally feel that this claim is true and scary as hell. I would avoid all areas where there is a big amount of people (malls, clubs, churches ect.) whether you are in Florida or any state. This was not just some random attack. I have this strange feeling that its not over. That this was a warning shot to say the least, as silly as that sounds considering how many people were killed or injured. I have a friend who is working at one of the hospitals where they took victims. Her Facebook statues are extremely sad. I couldn't imagine being there and witnessing all of this. I had a friend who was supposed to be in Orlando over the weekend but had to cancel his plans as his mother fell sick and was hospitalized. He was planning to go to Disneyworld with his cousin and their friends. They had even heard good things about that club and had it on their list of things to take a look at. My friend ended up staying behind (we are in California) and his cousins and their friends were in Orlando at the time. They had spent the day in the parks and had called it an early night and were asleep when it was all happening. But I can;t imagine if they had actually gone.

    I had that same struggle with faith first when I was twelve... I WAS raised until then in the Mormon church... I HATED it all my life...
    DO NOT get me wrong I respect the Mormon faith and all those whom decide to worship it... IT just was not my cup of tea...
    In fact one of my best friends and her husband are Mormon and as long as we do not talk religion we get a long real well...
    Then after twelve I struggled LIKE you did with finding and questioning religion for a number of years...
    THEN when I was in college I lost my cousin and her six children in a terrible accident...
    THAT made me QUESTION my faith even more... I was this YOUNG freshman in college and ready to drop out after that happened... :p
    THEN I needed one more class to meet my college requirements... I decided two weeks into the course to take one of the few options open to me this History class on Chinese Military History... I did not know why at the time... BUT NOW I DO!!!
    IT was a strong URGE and I did it... Terrence Cornwall my professor at the time saw that I was not absorbed in his class and really struggling... INSTEAD of giving up on me like a lot of professors do with students they see as washouts...
    My other two or three professors... EXCEPT my deaf English professor and Terrance... Otherwise know as Terry Cornwall to everyone who knew him gave up on this struggling college freshman in his first semester...
    Terrance took me aside one day before the drop out deadline and asked me... WHAT did I want to do in life and with college... WAS I SERIOUS about class... ETC!!! THAT may seem harsh to some... THEN he asked me WHAT was going on in my life and why I was struggling... I told him about my cousins and the accident... Breaking down in tears... ETC!!!
    THE next thing I know he is telling me about his experience in World War II and other personal things I did not think I needed to hear and ALSO his views on WORLD FAITH AND RELIGION!!!
    NEXT thing I know I am thinking less than a week... ENROLL as a HISTORY MAJOR with minors in English and Business... Also was REAL BIG into Woman's Studies and explored that as my third minor... However graduated after five years with the degree and the first two minors since I only had three credits needed to graduate and decided to just graduate... SO I DID!!!
    NOW you may ask the reason for this long life story... IT IS FAITH!!!
    Something or someone urged me to join that history class and also my FAITH at the time in the LORD was what helped me deal with the tragic death of my cousin and her children...
    NOT to mention I found the Lutheran and Methodist faiths... I EMBRACED both those faiths and incorporated them into my life... My faith may be Lutheran... BUT my husband is a DIE HARD Methodist and I had the Methodist church down the street less than a block from where I grew up... IF called to me constantly... I WENT there a lot when I needed comfort on a Sunday between the ages of twelve and twenty... KEPT going back there and could NEVER understand why I found comfort at that church and in that religion... NOW I DO!!!
    IT is the church and faith I was married in and my husbands faith... NOW I embrace it... AND I KNOW there was a guiding hand guiding me to my destiny...
    IT was the LORD for ME!!!
    OR so I believe... HE has guided my life to this point and time in my life...
    I MAY hate my job some days... BUT I love it too... DO NOT get me wrong... Love working in the bakery... BUT dealing with my CURRENT store manager is the biggest headache I have... BUT that is a different story for another day... SIGH!!!
    Anyway back to faith... I just feel the presence of the LORD in the littlest things in my life and that he is the helping or guiding hand when I LEAST expect it... THEN the next thing I know a miracle or what I see as a simple miracle has happened CONSTANTLY to renew and make my faith stronger in the LORD!!!
    Thank you for sharing your journey into finding your religion ! I'm glad it all worked out for you.

    Yeah I feel you though experiences like those are very important to shaping us. I went to Sunday school for 12 years. So glad to meet another atheist. What type of science do you teach ?

She continually, and somewhat angrily, told me I could never go to public school and had to stay in Catholic schooling. I began doubting at that point. In high school, it was a faith that never felt like mine, yet I had to continue learning, studying, and partaking in it. I think I really made the choice when I was a senior in high school, and was able to take a philosophy course over a religion course at school.

    This isn't to say that experience didn't have an impact on my life. As someone who teaches science classes, my experiences with religion and faith give me a better understanding of where my students are coming from, or how they may be feeling when we cover topics that are rather controversial to some faiths. It gives me the empathy I need to better educate, regardless of if it is a belief I share with my students or not.

    I have always wanted to do something working with children. To be honest, having my own daycare sounds like my dream. Tho, I know it will probably never happen! Lol.

    I am thinking of going back to school soon tho, so maybe I'll find something in that line of work!
