Orlando Congressional Delegation introduces Pulse resolution honoring Victims, Families, and First Responders

It might be a message, a mural, an art installation, a meme, a tweet, a song - people all over the world are acknowledging the impact of the Pulse attack in so many different unique and heartfelt ways. In the parking lot, flowers and handmade hearts were passed out as vigil attendees from across central Florida hugged, held hands and shed tears. The Pulse nightclub shooting was another terrorist attack, and another opportunity for Trump - as he did in the wake of the attack in San Bernardino, California, and others - to pick up on the fears gripping the country and give him the bump in the polls he argued terrorist attacks could deliver.

The names of the victims were read aloud at 2:02 a.m. -the time the June 12, 2016 massacre began. "We are one Pulse. It's like all the terrifying and very bad memories I had have been replaced with tonight, with this unity and all this love", Ramses Tinoco said during the memorial. "I tell them everything", Pulse owner Barbara Poma told several hundred people gathered for a midday ceremony at the club.

Through Carter's journey has been a self guided one, she said the support from her friends and family has been overwhelming.

"A year later I think the thing that is most important is this community and why I live here and why I'm so happy to live here", a tearful Williams said.

Helsinger and an army of volunteers first created and wore the wings to protect mourners at a Pulse victim's funeral from protesters who'd flown in from Kansas to picket across the downtown Orlando street. "It's hard to say that I am here because of God because, I'm sorry, I don't believe that God would take those people the way that they were taken", Jeannette McCoy told CNN.

"The sun always rises; the light always triumphs the darkness", Dyer said, according to WKMG reporter Sachelle Saunders.
