Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer confirmed the crosswalk, that over 2,700 people signed the petition to request it in memory of the victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre, was unveiled. According to the Orlando Sentinal, the crosswalk is also part of an interim memorial plan to make the nightclub more welcoming to visitors.
Other upgrades include lighted benches, a fence with murals and a walking area around the nightclub which still remains closed to the public since the shooting in June of 2016, where 49 people were murdered (and another 53 injured) in what was then considered the worst shooting in U.S. history. The Vegas shooting sadly surpassed that with 58 victims and over 500 injured.
And meanwhile, Congress does nothing about gun control, so a rainbow in the street is all we get.
