A Note Concerning the Tragedy in Orlando, Florida June 13th, 2016
Hello, Ecampus HDFS community—
On behalf of all of us in the College of Public Health & Human Sciences I’d like to express condolences to all affected by the horrible massacre that took place in Orlando, Florida this weekend. Like you we are heartbroken at the senseless, hateful act of violence perpetrated against members of the Orlando LGBTQ community.
As an out lesbian I am especially saddened by this attack, but I am also deeply moved by the tremendous outpouring of love and support sent to Orlando from around the world, including from Beaver Nation. As President Ray mentioned in his beautifully written email this morning, if you are especially impacted by this tragic event please feel free to contact OSU Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) at 541 737-2131 or via email, firstname.lastname@example.org . The OSU cultural resource centers are also available online through http://dce.oregonstate.edu/crcs .
I’ve never been prouder to be a member of both the LGBTQ community and Beaver Nation.
