Ann Wincey received this message from a friend of a friend who grew up in Orlando-- we thought you would enjoy this reflection on the horrible events in Orlando a few weeks ago.

Subj: Fw: Fwd: Growing Up in Orlando
 
 
 
This was written by a dear friend from our church in North Carolina who grew up in College Park.  She has given permission to share her thoughts which are so well expressed regarding the tradgy in Orlando.

 
Some of you may not know that I was born and raised in Orlando.  In fact, our family has lived in the same neighborhood for three generations, and all of my immediate family still lives in that same neighborhood.
 
I don’t tell you this to claim a connection to the recent tragedy in Orlando, or to elicit sympathy as if I personally suffered a loss in the mass shootings that took place Sunday morning.
 
I haven’t lived in Orlando for about 30 years, having moved to another Florida city for my career............but there is something about the town where you grew up........where you rode bikes to school and to the playground, where you swam in the lake (no one had pools then!) and went fishing.......where you played outside until the street lights came on........and went to church on Sunday, and choir practice on Wednesday........and Girls Scouts, and day trips to the beach..........and lived a childhood relatively sheltered in the innocence of small town America.
 
I was a senior in high school when Disney World opened its’ doors (yes, I am that old!).  When my parents were born and raised in Orlando, there was only one high school, and the main street (Orange Ave.) was a dirt road...........ironically, that same road that is now a major thoroughfare and is the street on which the Pulse night club is located.  We watched Orlando grow from a small town to a major city, but it still had the feel of a small town in the old familiar neighborhoods.
 
I was born in the hospital that served as the main treatment center for all the shooting victims (it was called Orange Memorial Hospital back then) so seeing all those images on the news was like seeing a bit of your own personal history flashed across the screen.
 
When the news reports started filling the airwaves, and I saw that tragedy had come to the place where I grew up, I felt both sadness and anger that some nut would choose my hometown to bring evil, and death, and terror.  He had no connection to Orlando; he drove 2 ½ hours to inflict such suffering.  I did not know anyone personally who was killed, but that kind of horror and evil strikes at ALL of us........and steals just a little bit more of our sense of innocence, of the safety of community, of the sense that we are somehow protected from the evil that is rampant in the world.
 
In the aftermath, and in the hours that followed, I felt great pride in watching “The City Beautiful” care for its’ own: the unbelievably long lines to donate blood (do you know how HOT it is to stand in the sun in Florida in June?).........and the local Chick-Fil-A employees who came in on Sunday when the store was closed  to make FREE sandwiches and drinks for the hundreds of people standing in line. 
 
I saw churches packing bags of drinks, snacks, wet wipes, etc. for all the police and emergency personnel who were still processing the crime scene...........giving a small dose of comfort to those on the front lines.
 
The medical side of me was amazed that Orange Regional Medical Center was able to handle almost 100 trauma patients in a matter of hours..........and you can bet that they not only had an awesome mass casualty plan in place, but had thoroughly practiced and prepared for events just like this.  That preparation and planning saved lives.
 
You don’t have to be an Orlandoan to feel great sadness and loss at what has happened.........as evidenced by the outpouring of support from all over this country and the world.  Every time something like this happens, ALL of us lose a little bit of innocence, of the sense of safety, and of faith in our government to protect us from harm.  You may even question your faith, and the belief that goodness will prevail against evil.
 
That is what I found myself thinking these past few days...........a range of emotions and feelings...........but mostly holding fast to the assurance that God is in control, that evil does not triumph in the end, and that one day I have the promise that suffering and sorrow will be no more.
 
There is no question that trusting in those promises is hard at times, when places (or people) close to you are victims of evil.........but maybe it was growing up in a “small town neighborhood” surrounded by a great community of friends and anchored by a church full of loving saints.........that foundation gives you a solid footing to stand on when the storms come.  I am grateful for growing up in Orlando, and my heart goes out to those living there now who are suffering and hurting.
