It’s hard to believe, but the first anniversary of the attack on the LGBT Community at Pulse night club in Orlando is ten weeks away. How can that possible? The grief, pain, and anger in the aftermath of the largest mass shooting in America’s history still seem like yesterday. But plans marking the first anniversary of the tragedy in Orlando that left 49 dead, dozens wounded, and countless lives shattered are well under way.
According to an Associated Press report from LGBTQNation.com,
“Elected officials on Monday said that June 12 officially would be dedicated as “Orlando United Day — A Day of Love and Kindness.”
Officials also announced a series of events planned throughout the day on June 12.
An exhibit of artwork collected from memorial sites set up around Orlando after the massacre will be shown at the Orange County History Center, followed by a memorial service at the site of the former gay nightclub.
Another memorial ceremony will be held in the evening around downtown Orlando’s Lake Eola.”
