Pulse Nightclub

PULSE Nightclub is in Orlando, Florida - USA. June 12, 2016 forty-nine people were killed and approximately fifty-three people were injured in the deadliest mass shooting carried out by the single gunman Omar Mateen. The PULSE Nightclub massacre was the deadliest incident of violence against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender(LGBT) people in the history of United States. The club area was gated off to the public. Their were police officials and red cross volunteers onsite to aid visitors.

In seeing the site of the shooting I felt emotional shock, great sadness and love. Their was silence all around and the neighborhood was healing. Next door to the club is an auto shop that has reopened for business.

I meet a couple from Indianapolis visiting Orlando for their holiday that wanted visit the shooting site to pay their respects. Kim has a son that is openly gay and she loves him. Although I did not know her I held her as she cried like she was my best friend.

I paid my respects to the 49 victims of PULSE massacre and left a flur de lis. Their were families who brought their children and explained why inclusion, love and acceptance was important. Cars passed by slowly and the birds did not sing.

  1. This post has a positive aspect and a negative one. The positive aspect is its exhibition of pictures which are present in a great variety. The negative aspect is the lack of text that contribute to the vague nature of the post. All in all I'd give it a 50-50
