1. Samuel Rodriguez
Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, was one of many Christian leaders urging citizens to seek refuge in God.
“Today our nation’s attention is on Broward County, Florida and the news of multiple fatalities at Parkland high school. As parents, every time we hear the terrible news of another school shooting, Eva and I are heartbroken and deeply troubled for our country,” he stated.
“Our hearts and prayers are with the parents and family members of those children who have lost their lives.
“Let every American stop what he or she is doing, and call out to God on behalf of all of America’s students, that God would spare our nation of ever again having to mourn such a senseless loss of life at our children’s schools.”
