Walt Disney World plans to honor a Nebraska boy who was killed by an alligator at one of its resorts near Orlando with a sculpture of a lighthouse.


A Pulse remembrance ceremony drew thousands of people to Lake Eola in downtown Orlando on Monday night. Among them were survivors of the shooting, as well as their loved ones. The families and friends of the forty nine people who were killed also took part in the vigil, many traveling from Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and across the United States.
