Harris-Stowe State University President Dwaun Warmack Addresses Orlando Tragedy
Dear Hornet Nation – 
Like all caring Americans, I am deeply grieved by the senseless terror attack that took place in Orlando over the weekend. Now is the time to actively purge our society of spiteful rhetoric and hasten toward what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called the "beloved community," where all can be safe and live in peaceful coexistence with our brethren of different nationalities, faiths and gender identities. If our nation is to heal, we must all exhibit acts of unity - this is our collective responsibility. 

I am proud that Harris-Stowe students took a public stand toward that goal. Yesterday students led a vigil at which we called for peace and pledged solidarity with members of the LGBTQIA community, our Latino brothers and sisters and all those in Orlando and around the world who believe that love conquers hate and that good will always triumph over evil.

Our campus is welcoming and accepting and we encourage ongoing, healthy dialogue to foster understanding between a diversity of voices.

While we continue to grapple with the aftermath of this tragedy, we pray for peace and try to find hope in the face of hate. 

As we watched the multicolored balloons drift skyward at the end of the vigil, we were reminded that the rainbow is visible after the storm.

Hornet Nation cries out, "We are Orlando," because we know all too well that tragedy can strike anywhere.  This tragedy hits close to our hearts and we must stand unified in love for humanity.

Thank you.
Dr. Dwaun J. Warmack
