Do not allow terrorists to win by cowering in fear. That is what terrorists want. Instead, work, play and live as usual after the cowardly attacks on innocent and unarmed people in Orlando and other cities.
Let us grieve our injured and killed; support our community; refocus and rebuild; and become stronger, smarter and better in our fight against terrorism.
We must have zero tolerance for the terrorist criminals who commit such heinous acts. We must stay active and productive. We must continue our normal lives. We must be vigilant, but we must not let the terrorists win by allowing them to steal our peace and freedom or our lives. This is our country, and we stand bravely and proudly in protecting it.
