Have you seen the new Pulse memorial mural in Thornton Park? The mural was recently installed on the side of Burton’s Bar. You can read more about the mural in this Bungalower post. Here’s a peek at the mural from local Instagrammer @lovecentralfl:
The newest mural to honor the 49 Pulse victims has popped up in Thornton Park. It features the victims, as well as others who have been affected by gun violence and human rights leaders. They plan to create a key explaining each person that was chosen. . . You can see handprints of family members beside each victim’s portrait. The artists have plans to move the mural to other locations every few months. #thisisorlando #humanrightsday . . #orlandostrong #onepulse #loveislove #thorntonpark #lovecentralfl
