‘Our Community Will Heal’: Orlando Sentinel Leads With Moving Front-Page Editorial

Jun 14, 2016  •  Post A Comment

The Orlando Sentinel took the unusual step of filling its front page with an editorial in Monday’s paper, running a piece about the Orlando nightclub shootings under the headline “Our Community Will Heal.”

“Words cannot adequately convey the depth of the horror and grief in Central Florida in the wake of what now ranks as the worst mass shooting in American history,” the editorial opens.

The piece continues: “Orlando now tragically sits atop a list of infamy, sharing the sorrow of Virginia Tech, Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo. We will not — we must not — let Sunday’s heinous act of brutality and cowardice define our community.”

The editorial has been updated and now runs online under the headline: “United to heal from nightclub shooting: Where We Stand.” Please click here to read the full editorial.
