Statement on Orlando Shooting from RRCC President

RRCC Students, Faculty and Staff,

Today we grieve over yet another mass murder. I'm heartbroken as are, undoubtedly, all of you at this tragic loss of life. It appears that this horrible incident targeted the Orlando LGBTQ community and our hearts go out to their families, friends, as well as to all who are affected by this. Our thoughts are also with our own RRCC LGBTQ community and we want to be sure that you have all the support you need. Jen Macken, our Director of Inclusion and Diversity, as well as Katey Parsons, our Student Behavioral Health Counselor, are available to you for support.  

In the days ahead, we'll know more about the individual who committed this atrocity. Whatever his affiliations, we know that his behavior was reflective of his own hate, ignorance and illnesses. We will resist any misguided efforts to extend blame where it is not deserved. I encourage you all to do the same.

We can only hope that something good can come from this tragedy. I don't know what it will take to reduce the level of violence we see both in the US and, even more so, abroad, but I know that it will likely be up to many of you, the next generation of leaders and advocates, to make it happen.
