The hateful terrorist attack at the Orlando night club over the weekend is the biggest of its kind in American history killing 49 people and wounding 53 more.
A Muslim man spurned on for his hatred of America and apparently that of homosexuals brought a large magazine assault rifle and a handgun into the night club where he proceeded to murder dozens of innocent people. The shooter had pledged his allegiance to ISIS before the attack.
During all of this tragedy, America has been brought together against the common enemy of ISIS. Democrats and Republicans, Christians, and Muslims all condemn the brutality that happened in Orlando.
But Atlanta-based fast food chain Chick-Fil-A did something that surprised many of the Christian company’s critics. Many of its workers showed up to the job on Sunday to show their support for the victims of the Orlando Massacre.
Founded on Christian values, Chick-Fil-A is always closed on Sundays to let their employees worship. But after the devastating loss in Orlando, employees at some of the city’s restaurants showed up to work.
Known for his closure on Sunday, the act of showing up on Sunday came as a surprise. Many of the dedicated employees prepared meals following the attack on the night club. They offered food and assistance to those in need.
“A few members of our awesome team decided to go into work on a Sunday and make some food for people waiting in line to donate blood. We love our city and love the people in our community. #prayfororlando” Chick-fil-A Lee Vista shared on social media.
In addition to the employees who came to work on Sunday, the company released a statement that said, “Orlando is in our hearts and prayers.”
Besides showing up to work, the Christian organization which has never showed sympathy for homosexuals in the past, lowered their flag to half-staff in lieu of the tragedy at the Orlando night club Pulse.
While hundreds of people waited in line to donate blood for those injured in the shooting, Chick-Fil-A distributed sandwiches and ice tea to the generous donors as well as the law enforcement officers who showed up at the scene. Fortunately, the man died on site.
The terrorist shooter was an American-born man who pledge his life to ISIS. He single-handedly caused the biggest mass shooting in history and the biggest terrorist attack since 9/11.
The murderer was 29-year-old Omar Mateen from Fort Pierce, Florida. The FBI interviewed him in 2013 and 2014 but there wasn’t enough evidence to deem him a threat.
Mateen called 911 during the shooting to tell responders that he pledged his life to ISIS. Police shot and killed the twisted man when they arrived on the scene.
He brought his AR-15 assault rifle into the popular night club at 2 a.m. when it is it its busiest. He wanted to hurt as many Americans as possible.
“It appears he was organized and well-prepared,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina said early Sunday.
