Pulse Nightclub: The one year anniversary is near and people are honoring those lost victims all over the world!
That’s why June has brought forth Gay Pride events in cities world wide.
Did you know that the Orlando Pulse shooting was the worst terror attack since 9/11? And it was also one of the most hateful attacks on the LGBTQ community in our modern history.
Orlando has already prepared an array of solemn vigils and somber speeches to help remember everyone who was lost.
Jennifer Foster opened up about the vigils. She said:
“This won’t just be a local response but a worldwide one.”
The city of Orlando has become more open in since the attack at Pulse Nightclub. And Carlos Carbonell opened about the culture change. He said:
“Now politicians stand up for LGBTQ rights in a way they would not have before.”
The fact that everyone has grown together through tragedy shows that we all can get through the toughest times. And like I’ve stated in many blogs before, we can’t show them fear, they want fear and that’s what they are trying to instill into our hearts.

And since then Ariana Grande has also had to deal with an attack at one of her concerts in Manchester. She was left with ‘no words,’ the night of the attack.
These tragic events happen and there’s no ‘perfect,’ way to make sure it doesn’t happen again, right? So, I think all we should and can do is love the lives we lead, spend time with those we love and pray or send good vibes to the rest of the world.
The good news is you can take part in supporting the LGBTQ community as well this month. June 12 has been declared “A Day of Love and Kindness.”
Everyone has been encouraged to perform an act of generosity to honor the 49 lives taken that night.
Orlando will be acknowledged internationally with a special project called the “49 Bells,” where churches all around the world will toll their bells 49 times for the victims of the terror attack at Pulse Nightclub.
Cathedrals in Luxembourg, Panama and Ecuador will also sound their bells, as well as Connecticut, Texas, Illinois and many other cities will also be taking part in honoring those who were lost.
