Today marks the one-year anniversary of the terror attack at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub. The deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history may have left 49 dead, 58 injured and thousands heartbroken, but many more will come together to ensure they are not forgotten.
As we take a moment to grieve the loss wrought by that massacre, we will also celebrate the lives of those lost, the courage of those who survived and the dedication of those who continue to help them heal.
A number of events and remembrances have been planned for this evening, including:
Day of Remembrance – co-hosted by Miami Police and Pridelines from 6 to 9 p.m. at AmericanAirlines Arena. For more information on this free event, visit heat.com/pulse.
Pulse Remembrance Flag Hanging Ceremony – organized by The Pride Center in Wilton Manors from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Pride Center lobby. For more information, visit Facebook.com/ThePrideCenter
Today we pay our respects to those whose lives were forever changed by a violent hate crime, and we continue to stand united in love.
