The mass shooting by Omar Marteen at the Orlando, FL nightclub Pulse shocked the nation, and has precipitated considerable debate about terror, guns, mental health, security, race and religion.

Increasingly reports are steering motive away from terrorism and more towards a hate crime, the product presumably of Marteen's internal conflict with his sexual identity.

The names of the 49 killed by Marteen have been published. Two were identified as employees of the club.

Kimberly Morris was a bouncer at Pulse nightclub. She was 37.

Deonka Deidra Drayton was a bartender at Pulse. She was 32.

We don't know yet who of the 53 wounded were employees of the club, if any.

Life takes a bad turn sometimes.

The mission of workers' compensation is to help when those bad turns happen at work.

I know the workers' compensation community, and in particular those in Florida, will provide to the victims and their families the best care and compassion they can.

Fulfilling our mission...
