Orlando’s Pulse nightclub, the site of the deadliest mass shooting in American history last June, will soon become a permanent memorial and museum to honor the victims.
The announcement was made Thursday, May 4 at the site of the now-vacant nightclub.
Forty-nine people died and 53 others were injured in the June 12 shooting.
It isn’t easy for me to stand on this site. What began as a place for fun and joy is now a sacred ground.
Barbara Poma, Pulse nightclub owner
Funds for the project and a scholarship are being spearheaded by the One Pulse Foundation, which was also announced on Thursday.
