A mother of a child killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting took to Facebook on Sunday to send a message to the families of the victims in the Orlando shooting.
She said she didn’t know about the shooting until friends and family members were contacting her, asking if she was okay.
“I no longer have a personal Facebook and the TV wasn't on. I don't sign in to the news. I saw it on Twitter and watched the numbers rise in real time. First some dead, then multiple, then 20 and now 50,” she wrote on a Facebook page dedicated to the memory of her daughter Ana Marquez-Greene.
Nelba Márquez-Greene said she was supposed to be traveling to Wisconsin and at first didn’t want to go, but would rather stay home and avoid reality.
“But my message was and is and always will be "love wins". And this is why I must go to Wisconsin,” she wrote.
Her message to the Orlando victims’ families began by saying she was sorry that the Sandy Hook shooting wasn’t enough to save their loved ones.
“I tried and I won't stop trying. Don't you dare even listen to even ONE person who may insinuate that somehow this is your loved ones fault because they were gay or any other reason. Nor is it God's wrath,” she wrote.
She continued to say she was going to Wisconsin to spread the message that “love wins.”
“My son will learn about your loved ones. And we will not forget. We will say their names out loud. We will remember your children. As you remembered and learned about ours,” she wrote.
