The Pulse tragedy happened in the early morning hours of June 12, 2016.
I still remember that day vividly, waking up to a text message from my sister telling me that a mass shooting had occurred at Pulse Nightclub. For years, we drove past this building every day as it was on the way to the Interstate 4 exit. Pulse. I knew the location well.
Orlando is now a site of a mass shooting, a horrific massacre, and the events at Pulse changed our city forever. These individuals were parents, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, friends, all innocent victims, who lost their lives.
For those wanting to pay respects to the victims of this senseless tragedy, here is a small photo gallery of memorials I have visited since that tragic day, and information on memorials as we cross the two-year mark of the Pulse tragedy.
The Initial Days After – June 2016
One Year Later – June 2017
Two Years Later – June 2018
Two years after the Pulse tragedy, the Orlando County Regional History Center once again has a special exhibit on display. Called Another Year Passes: Orlando after the Pulse Nightclub Massacre, a full exhibition of items and images collected from the Pulse memorial sites will be on display from June 2, 2018 to October 14, 2018.
The Annual Remembrance Ceremony takes place on June 12, 2018, at 7 p.m. The location is at the Pulse Nightclub Memorial on Orange Avenue.
As we cross the two-year mark, Orlando is still affected by the Pulse tragedy. We will never forget what happened. Now, we are brought together to remember the 49 innocent lives that were taken away that day. This act of hate happened in Orlando, the City Beautiful, OUR city, and together we will heal.
