Pulse Nightclub Shooting Victims Honored On One-Year Anniversary

By

Today, we mourn the one-year anniversary of one of the most heartbreaking tragedies in our nation's history.

One year ago today, innocent lives were taken in a mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando during a celebration of love and tolerance.

Killing 49 people and leaving over 50 injured, the shooting at the gay nightclub, which occurred during Pride Month, was one of the largest mass shootings in U.S. history.

After their lives were so senselessly taken, it is our duty to remember each and every victim for the incredible human beings they were.

In a series of 49 tweets posted today, Twitter user Khary Penebaker (@kharyp) remembers each and every single one of the wonderful human beings lost in the senseless shooting.

Read along as we remember them not just as victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting but as real people, members of people's families, loves of people's lives who were taken from our Earth way too soon.
