Message of Sadness and Grief‏


flowers_white_fiThe National Women Veterans United (NWVU) Stands in solidarity of grief and sadness in the horrific harm done in Orlando where 50 people were killed. Our hearts ache regarding the loss and wish recovery for those injured survivors. Some may have been veterans, we don’t know yet but I am sure the individuals were of professions and careers in various capacities including service in their perspective communities in some way for someone.

Those of us who believe in prayer are praying for peace over the nation and encouraging unity among all people to deter the senseless killing of our children in Chicago and the hateful acts worldwide.
