It's been one year since the deadliest shooting in United States history when 49 people were shot and killed and 58 others wounded after a man opened fire inside Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
It was a day that shook the entire country -- and world.
Today, one day after tens of thousands of people participated in the Resist March during LGBTQ Pride Weekend in West Hollywood and D.C., thousands are paying tribute to the lives lost on June 12, 2016 in one of the most horrific terrorist attacks-hate crimes our country has seen.

June 12th marks the day where just one year ago some of the most horrific events unfolded inside pulse nightclub. Let us spend our day today in mourning the loss of the 49 beautiful and innocent souls that got stolen from us in a disgusting and ignorant act of terrorism. But all the while celebrating their time on this beautiful earth. Please get out there , go to your local pride parades and events, march your hearts out and let us all wear our rainbows with PRIDE and remember that THIS is what pride month is all about ! 🌈🌈🌈 #lovealwayswins
