Washington, D.C. — Today, the United States Senate unanimously passed a resolution sponsored by U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rick Scott (R-FL) honoring the memory of those killed in the terrorist attack at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub three years ago.
The full text of the resolution is below:
Honoring the memory of the victims of the heinous attack at the Pulse nightclub on June 12, 2016.
Whereas, on June 12, 2016, a gunman inspired by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria targeted the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where he killed 49 innocent victims and wounded dozens more in a despicable attack;
Whereas the attack at the Pulse nightclub was an attack on the LGBTQ community, the Hispanic community, the City of Orlando, the State of Florida, and the United States;
Whereas the Orlando community continues to mourn the tragic loss of life, but has demonstrated remarkable strength, unity, and resilience in the aftermath of the horrendous event;
Whereas June 12 is designated as ‘‘Pulse Remembrance Day’’ in the State of Florida to honor the victims and survivors of the senseless attack;
Whereas the people of the United States continue to pray for those affected by the tragedy; and Whereas June 12, 2019, marks 3 years since the lives of the 49 innocent victims were tragically cut short by the senseless act of terrorism: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the Senate—
(1) commemorates the 49 victims killed in the attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, 2016, and offers heartfelt condolences to the families, loved ones, and friends of the victims;
