Orlando United Day – A Day of Love and Kindness took place on June 12, 2017 in Orlando, FL. This day was dedicated to honor the memory of the 49 innocent Pulse victims.
I was chosen to field produce for our digital media department. I was on-site at the Pulse Nightclub where friends, families, and supporters gathered to pay their respects to the 49 lives that were taken too soon.
With a year between us I witnessed tears, hugs, and acceptance. I have never felt so connected to a community as I did that day.
What I took away from the day is this: Though our hearts may be heavy, our Pulse is strong. Evil can never, and will never divide us.
We will not let hate win.
