City of Orlando to establish permanent Pulse memorial

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer announced in a June 24 press release that the City will establish a permanent memorial for victims of the Pulse shooting.

“We stand committed to creating a permanent space that will preserve the memory of those who lost their lives, provide comfort to those who seek it and honor the spirit and love of our great city,” Dyer says.

According to the announcement, a location for the memorial has yet to be established. However, the Orange County Regional History Center is ready to collect items like signs and letters from temporary memorials to use in a permanent one.

Dyer says there will be a “community-based committee” to oversee the decision-making process regarding the memorial.

It will be a place “where we all can remember each of those who were taken from us and the love they brought into this world,” Dyer says.
