Pulse Victims Are Laid to Rest

Christopher "Drew" Leinonen, age 32, and boyfriend, Juan Ramon Guerrero, age 22, were both killed during last Sunday night's shooting. Yesterday was Christopher's memorial service at Cathedral Church of St. Luke in downtown Orlando. Two days after the shooting I joined a  group on Facebook called Human Chain Link for Pulse Funerals, the group has formed to protect the victims and their loved ones from any hate groups that may arise during their memorial services. As of today the group is at a member number of 33,276.

It is a blessing this group was formed. Westboro Baptist Church, who gives religion a bad name- made their way to Florida and obtained a permit to be a block away from the church where Christopher's memorial service was taking place. I can't understand why they call themselves a church, they breath and breed only hate. Their website heading is "God Hates Fags." This group is the epitome of pure evil.

I will be posting more images soon, and tell you how love conquered hate.

At 2:02 am tonight, the church bells at the Cathedral will ring 49 times in honor of all the victims.
