    Sad weekend here in Orlando. 2 Tragedies 2 Nights in a row. I know we can't talk Politics here and I don't want to... Just want to say you never think this sort of thing will happen in your own Backyard. But this will not Stop Me from Living My Life - Doing the things I like to do such as; Enjoying my City, Dining out, Going to Concerts and the Theme Parks and/or Traveling to other Cities across the USA or visiting Countries abroad. Peace!

    In Beirut, the shopkeeper sweeps the glass and reopens for business. There's nothing political to discuss. There are very evil people in this world. Political groups can't stop evil.

    My son and Grandson were in Disney last week for 6 days. And they went Downtown Disney several nights. It is scary but if we hide ourselves away then we are giving in.

    This was the other tragedy. It happened Friday night. Such a sad, heartbreaking story. I didn't really know who she was until I learned of what happened, and when I googled her and watched her performances on youtube I was floored - her voice was spectacular and she was so young and had her whole life and career ahead of her:

    Today yet a third Orlando tragedy was reported, and that was the poor 2-year-old child being dragged into a manmade lake in Disney World by an alligator.
