The tributes to the Orlando shooting victims continue to pour in, including one held on Monday at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Florida. To commemorate and honor the victims, people held their wands up in the air in front of Hogwarts castle.
It's a little hard not to get emotional when viewing these images, considering two of the victims from the shooting, Luis Vielma and Felipe "Tony" Marrero, worked at Universal Studios. Vielma, who was a ride attendant at Harry Potter World, was killed, and Marrero remains in critical condition. A few more images from the memorial are ahead.
Universal team members and friends gather around wands and candles placed on the ground in front of Hogwarts Castle in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park. The items were placed there in memory of Universal Orlando team members Luis Vielma and Xavier Serrano, who were killed in the Orlando nightclub attacks. Luis worked in the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride and sometimes used a wand as part of this role. Xavier was a parade performer. #orlandounited #orlandostrong #orlandopride #harrypotter #tribute #twitter #universal #universalorlando #islandsofadventure #prayfororlando #wizardingworld #oneorlando
This is just another example of how communities are coming together to show support and reaffirm the idea that love is love. It's just one way to take action after the events in Orlando.
