at McDonald’s at age 15 to help support his
family, and was recently made the manager of a

first home this spring so that his mother
could live there too. He loved to escape to the
beach, though his best friend called him a big Teddy
bear who was happy when everyone depended on him. Stanley Almodovar
III, 23 years old. Stanley was a
pharmaceutical technician who kidded that the
drug life chose me. He always loved to change
his hair color and style almost as much as he loved
flirting with the camera. He once proclaimed
yes, I wear makeup, and I’m still a man about it. Deonka Deidra Drayton, 32. DD was an employee of
the Pulse nightclub who had overcome struggles
like a long ago car accident and a more
recent bout with drugs. She resumed attending

with his partner in love and business, Juan

the techno music. Juan Pablo Rivera

and grow his sideburns long in his small town

started the romance was called Declaration
by Cartier. Jean Carlos Mendez

at a Perfumania outlet. He later saw one
appreciative customer who had taken his
recommendation at a club, and the two began an
eight-year relationship. Jean and Danny Wilson Leon

high school diploma. Xavier Emmanuel

Puerto Rico 10 years ago and booked gigs as a
professional salsa dancer at Walt Disney World and
on large cruise ships. He had a five-year-old son,
and often took side jobs for extra dollars. He recently found

better for raising his boy. Tevin Eugene Crosby,

bright as his future. Angel LA Candelario-Padro,

to Luis touched her so deeply that she
couldn’t stop crying. Omar Capo, 20 years old. Omar held jobs at
Target and Starbucks while he set his sights on
being a professional dancer and actor. After the shooting,
his grandmother flew to be with family, and

condolences, and some added long
letters and cash donations. Eric Ivan Ortiz-Rivera,

third year of college with a side job

    I like how they matched the celebrities with the victims that they share something with. Like Harry Shum Jr honoured the victim who enjoyed dancing, and Melissa Benoist honoured the person who had two dogs. This video is so beautiful.

    I've watched this so many times and I'm always left with the thought… why? If there is a God, why did he create people who are capable of taking another's life? I think the answer is — embrace one another and try to understand one another. Don't make people feel left alone and be there for them so nothing like this ever happens again. And fuck you, NRA.

    Right now.
    There's no excuse, no reason for these to keep happening. I don't care if you think guns are your right.
    Living is our right. Living should've been their right.
    if you seriously think giving more people guns will stop this kind of tragedy, go fuck yourself.

    All I can say is that I’m so so sorry.
    It saddens me so much that we’re told our whole lives to be ourselves and when we try to express it a monstrousity like this occurs.
    But what happened in Orlando made me realise that if people hated me for being me, then fuck them.
    This forced me to open my eyes and accept myself because what’s the point of hating who you are.
    I’d want die lovng who I am. No one else’s opinions matter.

    Three years out and the pain still cuts so deep. As a gay man whose hometown is β€œThe City Beautiful” (Orlando), I don’t know if this vicious tragedy will ever stop hurting, but even through agonizing heartbreak we must all dedicate ourselves to being the change we want see in this world: we must love out loud with whole of our hearts; we must never allow fear to deter us from enjoying the beauty and the fullness of the human experience; we must never forget.

    These 49 precious souls are still part of our rainbow family and we will love them always. Their lives were stolen from them, but their stories will never be done…not as long as we remember them with love in our hearts and our minds.

    It is ours, the survivors they left behind, to grieve for them and for all the potential that one coward believed he had the right to cut short, but we can never allow hate to win. We must live and love loud and proud because I believe that it’s what our Pulse brothers and sisters would have us do.

    Though the pain can easily consume us if we let it, and though we can never erase the images of that night from our minds, when we remember each of the victims, let us not think of how they died, but how they lived.

    Using the bible to justify hate is disgusting. It doesn't serve its purpose if that's the case then. God doesn't care how many bible verses you have memorized. He cares how you treat people. Don't use the bible as a tool to hurt other people because whatever sin you point out in one person is no different than ones your guilty of. God only wants us to love one another. How you judge your fellow will be used as a measurement of how God will judge you. Take note of that.
    For the victims of this evil act, Rest in peace.. God's love you..you all will never be forgotten..
