TEXT:

 

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected
Our thoughts are with their families
Thoughts are with those affected by this horrific act

 

Sending thoughts, prayers, sympathy

 

Thoughts and prayers are with San Bernardino
Our thoughts and prayers are with the individuals and families affected in Charleston
Keeping all harmed in Sutherland Springs in our prayers
We pray for those brutally attacked in Orlando

 

My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families
of the terrible Las Vegas shooting

 

My thoughts and prayers are with the shooting victims
