Among the attendees were four mothers whose children were gunned down by Omar Mateen in the pre-dawn hours of June 12, 2016.

Monday marks one year since 49 people were killed and 53 more were wounded at Pulse nightclub.

A licensed, American-born security guard, Mateen was able to buy his weapons legally though the FBI had investigated him twice, inconclusively.

As he says in the video, "It was heartbreaking to see so many precious lives taken and so many families destroyed because of hatred". As a Republican lawmaker, she is happy to see that there has been a shift in attitude among her fellow Republicans when it comes to gay rights.

Fred Wright said that he and his wife would continue to do what they could to make the changes happen. "Something like that is not going to stop us from saying, 'Hey, this is who we are.' We are not going to stop that from happening". Abacus was the only bank in the U.S.to face criminal charges after the 2008 financial crisis.
