Mid-Michigan community reacts to Orlando terrorist attack

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The news of the tragic mass shooting in Orlando has sent shock waves throughout this nation and around the world.

A reaction of sorrow and pain that there is no explanation for the killings that happened Sunday morning in Orlando.

At a local church in Saginaw, members are dealing with the news of the events with a reaction of sorrow and pain that there is no explanation for the killings.

“No one has the right to take another life, that is not of God,” Pastor Elder David Howard said.

Pastor Howard of the Holy Missions Church of God and Christ knew his sermon’s message was that of faith as his church tries to understand the what and whys of Sunday morning in Orlando.

However, the word fear is not coming from his pulpit.

“We must not live in fear. We must live our lives, if not what good am I?” he said.

U of M Flint will be holding a candlelight vigil to honor the victims of the shooting in Orlando.

Community members are invited to join students and faculty at Wilson Park Monday night at 7:30.

The vigil is being organized by the LGBTQ Center and the Pride Student Group at the school.
