From Winter Haven to Orlando with LOVE Candlelight Vigil
Jun 24, 2016
8:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Community residents will hold a public candlelight vigil to remember and honor the 49 lives lost in Orlando, pray for the recovery of 53 wounded individuals and dozens of survivors who were inside Pulse on the night of the shooting.
On Friday, June 24, 2016 at 8 p.m. the public is invited to gather for a peaceful and respectful service to remember the victims, their families, our friends and the greater Orlando community in the wake of the horrific events that took place on June 12, 2016. The vigil will take place following music, prayers, poems and words of peace, inspiration and love shared by community leaders. A moment of silence will follow the reading of each victim’s name.
Some candles will be provided, but people are encouraged to bring candles, water and hugs for yourself and others. Flowers, signs and flags of peaceful countries, organizations or branches of service are welcome.
