This latter feeling will probably never fully go away, but at least there are efforts continuously being made to honor the innocent men and women we lost on that day. Today, Buddy Dyer, the mayor of Orlando, teamed up with Teresa Jacobs, the Mayor of Orange County, to officially declare June 12th "Orlando United Day," which is slated to be "A Day of Love and Kindness." Meant to commemorate the victims and their families, Orlando United Day will feature "a number of community events and activities." Both mayors and One Orlando Alliance also urge citizens to treat Orlando United Day as a special day for focusing on doing acts of love kindness.
