>Three days before the fifth anniversary of the attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed legislation designating the site of the gay club a national memorial.

>The House passed its version of the bill May 12. The measure now goes to President Joe Biden, who has supported a number of pro-LGBTQ proposals and is expected to sign it into law, though it’s unclear when.

>In 2019, the nonprofit onePulse Foundation unveiled a design for a museum and monument, created by French architectural firm Coldefy & Associés in collaboration with Orlando-based HHCP Architects.

>The monument incorporates a reflecting pool and a garden with 49 trees ringing the remains of the nightclub, where an interim memorial currently stands.

>A half-mile away, on West Kaley Street, the museum would rise “like a budding flower,” the foundation said in a news release, with a rooftop memorial offering views of both the memorial and what is being called the "Pulse District" south of downtown Orlando.

>The first phase of the memorial, a "Survivors Walk" featuring interactive sculptures, will span a half-mile of South Orange Avenue and connect the memorial to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where many wounded were taken the night of the attack, the Sentinel reported.

>Initially set for 2022, completion of the museum and memorial has been delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the Sentinel.

What a joke.

I think 49 frags are worth a memorial. The shooter holds rank 2 in the enternal national high score list.
