Attempting to Make Sense of the Senseless

I don’t know what to say anymore. It hurts to think about any of it. But we have to.

Here’s the gofundme link if you feel like financially helping the victims of the massacre.

Here are some links to local Orlando LGBT support groups, The Center and the Orlando Youth Alliance. Your financial support of these organizations will help their community heal.

I salute all the Floridians who lined up to donate blood after this tragedy. A bright spot in this: the blood banks in Orlando are at capacity for the moment. They’re asking folks to schedule appointments in the coming days and weeks, when supply has decreased once more. [http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-orlando-nightclub-shooting-blood-donations-20160612-story.html] I’m betting that wherever you live, a blood bank needs your donation, too.

I know gun control is a touchy subject. I’m not gonna preach about it. But if you are so inclined to take some political action, I urge you to peruse @igorvolsky‘s feed for specific details about individual lawmakers, their voting record on gun control laws, and NRA donation amounts in their campaign coffers.

Please, let this be the last one.

Trauma surgeon Lieutenant Cassandra Toma begins her deployment at the Joint-Unit Air Base on the wrong foot. On her first day, she clashes with her new commander. Her rebellious nature and sassiness rival her excellent performance in the operating room. It might be the only reason she’s not reprimanded … or is it?

Major David Hunt is unsure how to handle the brilliant and beautiful Cassandra. As her commander, he can’t consider a relationship. A forbidden passion consumes them with the intensity of an erupting volcano, leaving her heartbroken and him with tarnished honor and pride as an officer. The only way out for David is disappearing into the dangerous warzone in Iraq.

When their paths cross again, Cassandra and David find they have a common goal—to find Cassandra’s brother, Maj. Robert Toma, kidnapped by insurgents while on patrol. To rescue him, they must put aside their resentments and fight their common enemy. And the fire between them is back.

Cassandra wants to give David—and their love—another chance. But she doesn’t know that his mistake, his secret, could cost them both the love they’ve finally found.
