Orlando Commemorates 2nd Anniversary of Pulse Shooting

Two years ago today, the Orlando community suffered a horrible tragedy as a gunman entered a gay nightclub in the early morning hours and opened fire, killing 49 people and wounding over 50.

Despite the city’s devastation, Orlando pulled together and stood united in the face of adversity. Mere hours following the shooting, memorials and vigils arose in every corner of the city. Over 50,000 people attended the Lake Eola vigil in the heart of the city, just miles from the nightclub. The rest of the world quickly followed suit, trending #OrlandoStrong and #LoveWins hashtags on social media.

Today, on the two-year anniversary of the massacre, the city is uniting with a remembrance ceremony, a run and art exhibits. Today, Orlando stands more united than ever before. The city works tirelessly to honor and remember the 49.

Starting at noon, 49 bells will ring across Orlando. The onePulse Foundation will hold its Annual Remembrance Ceremony at the Pulse Interim Memorial.
