This week is all about Orlando. I decided to dedicate our social media and blog strictly to the tragedy. Make sure to follow us on Facebook for articles, videos, tribute, news and more. Today’s story is about a survivor, Norman Casiano, who escaped from the bathroom when the murderer left it for few minutes, before he came back to kill everybody else.

Norman Casiano was shot in the back during the attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando. He was released from the hospital, and now he’s sharing his story with us. In this extremely well described interview, Norman tells New York Times reporter how his adrenaline led him to get out of the bathroom while most of his friends stayed inside. Most were killed few minutes after by Mateen.

Check out the video below and get your kleenex.

(Anyone of our members who think have been in contact with Omar Mateen on Adam4Adam, please get in touch with us. Rumours are that he had an account on many gay apps including Adam4Adam and we would like to find that information to be able to give it to the Police. We are looking at ALL accounts in Florida as we speak, but didn’t find anything yet. He probably didn’t have any photos in his profile like many other users who are not publicly out. Thanks for your help! (support@adam4adam.com)

In the twenty-eight years I’ve been alive, I’ve seen some disturbing things. Yes, everyone can truly say that, but today for me, it really hit close to home.

I know I was not the only one watching the news on days like 9/11 or the Boston Marathon. But in this day and age, do we really think or wonder what our fellow humans think or feel during these times?

As usual, the Internet is cluttered with “Stand With Orlando” or “love for Pulse” and there’s a slew of images and memes, There are outsiders that mutter “it’s just herd mentality.”  Allow me to put those lines to rest. Right now, droves of people are waiting in the hot Florida sun on a Sunday to donate much needed blood in response to a sudden demand. As reactive as the citizens of “The City Beautiful” have been, why was it necessary?

Approximately 20 people are dead (UPDATED TO 50 DEAD AT 10:30AM) inside Pulse Nightclub, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said Sunday morning, just hours after a shooter opened fire in the club. At least 42 people have been transported for medical treatment, he said.

“It’s appears he was organized and well-prepared,” the chief said, adding that the shooter had an assault-type weapon, a handgun and “some type of (other) device on him.” Orlando authorities said they consider the violence an act of domestic terror. The FBI is involved.

“Everyone get out of Pulse and keep running,” the nightclub posted on its Facebook page shortly after the violence began.

Anyone who was at Pulse nightclub and was a witness are asked to go to the Orlando Police HQ, 100 S. Hughey Ave. If you are unable to go, authorities urged any witnesses to call ‘1-800-CALL FBI’ with any information.

For your information, there were 372 mass shootings in the US in 2015, killing 475 people and wounding 1,870, according to the Mass Shooting Tracker, which catalogues such incidents. A mass shooting is defined as a single shooting incident which kills or injures four or more people, including the assailant.

I would like on behalf of all the staff at Adam4Adam to send our love and prayers to all the friends and family of injured or dead people. When I wrote this article and did my research I couldn’t hold my tears as I saw photos and videos of the shooting. I am also very frustrated that a killer attacked my people, probably some users of A4A, some of our friends.

I will try to keep you posted on ur Facebook page, when I get more infos! Meanwhile, feel free to share the “PrayForOrlando” photo that is on our page to show your support and leave your condolences and thoughts in the comment section below.

A4A : Thanks To Everyone Who Donated, We Raised…

Hi guy!

Two days ago I had the idea that A4A should donate an amount to help people living with HIV/AIDS in honour of World Aids Day. Yes I know, I was very last minute! I talked about it to A4A owner and he suggested something else. He said that we could offer 100% of the VIP sales on December 1st! So I took my pen, designed the mailer that you received yesterday in your A4A mailbox, asked our graphic designer to create it along with few images for a social media campaign. I was determined to raise the more possible!

Well you guys didn’t deceived! With your help, we raised in 24 hours, an astonishing $3,430! Today, we are very proud to donate that amount to The Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation who helps people living with HIV/AIDS. We selected this foundation because 100% of the money goes towards helping people living with HIV/AIDS as Ms. Taylor’s trust pays for all the operation costs.

Once again, thanks very much to everyone who donated yesterday!

Dave
