Candles vigil

For our friends from the LGBTI community

The event that took place in Orlando on Saturday evening was an horrific assault. An assault on every person who values connectedness, compassion and diversity. An assault on a proud community celebrating its rightful place in our world.

Our thoughts are with not only those directly affected, but with all people from the LGBTI community, here and all over the world.

Know that there are others standing with you and many strong arms are around you.
