Last year, Orlando was struck by an unspeakable tragedy, as 49 were killed in Pulse, an LGBT nightclub.
It's important to honor those victims and give back to the community in any way possible.
Orlando City SC, the city's MLS team, did their part today by unveiling 49 rainbow seats in their brand new stadium. The team tweeted a video of the unveiling today.
The 49 seats are in the middle of section 12 in the stadium, and that's no accident. The Pulse shooting occurred on June 12th, 2016. In addition, the positioning and location of those seats mean that they are nearly impossible to ignore. Wherever your seat may be in Orlando City Stadium, you can see them, as a reminder of the tragedy.
Phil Rawlins, one of the owners of Orlando City's team, explains all of this in the official video release, as well as the importance of the community to this city. It's a beautiful tribute to a community that is still grieving, and needs support.
