Daily Diaries: A Closer Look at the Outpouring of Love for the Victims of the Orlando Shooting

The mass shooting incident at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida broke not just the hearts of the victims' families, but of the world. We've compiled some of the most beautiful showcases of kindness and humanity not just to those whose lives were taken and affected, but also to the entire LGBTQ+ community:

Among these stories include 600 individuals volunteering to donate blood for the shooting victims by visiting various blood banks around Orlando...


Even Filipinos in San Francisco are one with the shooting victims through prayer vigils:


Key structures around the world including One World Trade Center, San Francisco International Airport, the White House, Germany's Brandenburg gate, and Melbourne's City Hall, displayed rainbow colors as a show of solidarity with the LGBT community:


British pop singer Adele, who considers the LGBT community as her "soulmates" gave a teary-eyed speech, dedicating her Belgium concert to the shooting victims:


Harry Potter author JK Rowling, on the other hand, gave recognition to one of the victims, who happens to work at the Harry Potter ride at Universal Studios Florida:


Sean Astin, best known for playing Samwise Gangee in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, posted a short dialogue between Sam and Frodo, the last few lines being his message to the victims and their respective families:


Just remember: No matter how evil other people can be sometimes, there are those who will bring back our faith in humanity. As The Lord of the Rings' Sam would tell Frodo, "There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for."
