This tragic event reminds us that mental health in America needs to be addressed, but it's not always the reason people commit crimes. Some people are just A-HOLES and that's probably what this guy was.

We need to get people help. We can't let mental illness go unnoticed. If you notice anyone who might have any form of mental illness, then please reach out to them or get them help. Do not remain silent if you see or hear something that could be alarming or odd behavior.

How did the shooter get passed security at The Plaze Live in Orlando with two guns, a knife, and ammo? What happened there? Why did he get through security? Where was security? How was there a lapse in security that permit a man to enter with three weapons and reserve ammunition?

So many questions, so little answers, and no good reason this had to happen. It's a shame and we need to stop this senseless violence. #PrayforChristina #RIPChristina
