Remembering Pulse: One Year Later



We are quickly approaching the one year remembrance of the tragic loss of 49 innocent souls and injury of 53 others that occurred on June 12, 2016 at Pulse Orlando. People may experience a variety of emotions on or around an anniversary date of a loss or tragedy. Some people may choose to reach out to others for help or support, whereas others may choose to process their thoughts and feelings internally. In any case, I wanted to provide some information and resources to be aware of. Please take care of yourself.

A helpful guide to what you may be experiencing is Coping with Reactions to the One-Year Mark (Orlando United Assistance Center).
