Pulse and Parkland survivors came together to speak out against violence


Survivors of the Pulse massacre this week met with students and families from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that took 17 lives. The two groups stood together as the names of the 66 victims of both mass shootings were read aloud, before the Parkland survivors hung 49 white roses as a symbol of 49 lives taken by the Pulse shooting. Pulse survivors wore shirts that bore the slogan ‘We Will Not Let Hate Win’, while Parkland survivors wore shirts that read ‘Kids First, Politics Second’. One Pulse survivor said: “We’re here to open our arms and welcome them with love.” The Orlando Mayor said that 2 years ago everybody prayed for them and now they are praying for Parkland, letting them know that they can count on support from those who went through the same horror.
