Rumble Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orlando Commissioner Patty Sheehan marked the third anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting on June 12, laying a wreath of white flowers at a memorial to the victims in the city’s Colonialtown Square Park. Forty-nine people were killed and dozens were injured in the shooting at the LGBT nightclub in 2016. The Pulse Memorial Labyrinth, where the wreath was laid, features a rainbow heart at its center and a series of winding pathways surrounding it. The edges of the circular installment are inscribed with the names of the 49 victims who died. Dyer and Sheehan also visited Orlando’s Greenwood Cemetery earlier that day to honor of the victims who were buried there. On Twitter, Dyer wrote: “As our community honors the 49 today, we also send our love to the survivors and the victim’s families. Healing is not simple and we are still recovering as individuals and as a city.” Credit: Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer via Storyful
