Today, Governor John Bel Edwards and First Lady Donna Edwards released the following statement on the mass shooting in Orlando, Fl.

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” Psalm 18:2

“There are no words that will comfort the survivors and families of the victims of this tragic incident, but it is our hope that the people of Florida will find solace in this scripture during this very difficult time. This is a senseless tragedy of unimaginable scale.  In the face of adversity, as we always do, we stand united against acts of terrorism that threaten our people and our way of life.  Donna and I, along with every citizen in Louisiana, send our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families.  We stand ready to support the State of Florida in any way that we can to bring justice for those whose lives were lost.”
