Community Solidarity Gathering in Denver Friday Evening

orlandoOn June 12th, a terrorist attack occurred inside Pulse, a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, resulting in 49 deaths and 53 injuries.

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
