Orlando Shootings – Preparing the Way


The world has stopped. Our Orlando World. We don’t know what to do or what to say. Over 50 people have been killed in a shooting at Pulse Nightclub here in Orlando.

I have chills all over my body, as I realized we did simulation training with Orlando Health doctors on how to Break Bad News effectively and compassionately earlier this year. Dr. Orsini, as seen in the picture above, starting the Breaking Bad News Foundation to help doctors communicate with families in tragic and life altering situations…and the Orlando Shootings


My heart is hurting for those doctors and staff members who are dealing with the victims and their family members. So many of them exuded so much love and commitment to their profession…. I am praying for the staff at Orlando Health and everyone walking through this tragedy?

My heart is a mess over all of this…

“JESUS- I am so saddened…I look at your creation tonight and don’t understand. So much light, yet so much darkness. We claim revival in the face of destruction. You make all things new. Make peoples’ heart new, Lord. Make injured bodies whole, tired doctors refreshed, hurting families at peace. Use us, Lord, Your people, to reach those hurting and lost. Use us to show You. Get us out of the way so only Your love can be seen. Use my experience with grief and trauma to help others… Rid me of selfishness and self centeredness, JESUS. Holy Spirit- show me the way I should go for I am Yours”

“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.” Psalm 143:8
