Breathtaking moment for mourners as rainbow appears over Orlando shooting vigil

Timing of rainbow was ‘perfect’

Sometimes the smallest signs can completely change someone’s day. That’s exactly what happened on Sunday evening when a full rainbow formed over a mass vigil for the victims of the Pulse nightclub mass shooting in Orlando, Florida.

Downtown Orlando’s Lake Eola Park lit up as an estimated 50,000 people paid their respects to the 49 slain and 53 injured during the attack.

According to reports, many attendees agreed that the timely appearance of the rainbow, a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender pride — was a perfect sign that everything is going to be OK.
