I can't believe this happened. People shot in a mall in my homestate. In a mall I've shopped at countless times.

I'm scared to see the names of those killed released; scared someone I know will be among them.

Ever since moving to the Orlando area, I've been really scared of the crime. I can't really watch the local news because it terrifies me. We moved to a guarded community for a reason. But really, you can't ever be safe. Because as you're Christmas shopping, some crazy, depressed, sad, sick teenager can just open up and end your life.

I can't comprehend this. I can't think about it too much. So I'll pray. For the families of those killed and for the family of the killer. Even for the killer, because I can't imagine how awful life must have been for him to ever do something this awful.

Sometimes the path we take is out of our hands. We can't live in fear. Live every day to the fullest and be strong!

I know, it's so tough. I think it's much more hard for me to hear about news like this now that I'm a mom - it's because there is just SO MUCH to lose. I hope you find some peace, and I hope that those so hurt by that tragedy find it as well.
