Gov. Scott: We remember the 49 lives lost in Orlando with 49 flags for 49 days

- On Friday, as a memorial of those who lost their lives during the Orlando terror attack, Governor Rick Scott directed 49 Florida state flags to be placed in front of the Florida Historic Capitol in Tallahassee for 49 days.

Under each flag displays the name, age and photo of every victim of the terror attack. “The memory of this horrific tragedy will never be forgotten, as well as the legacies of each of the 49 victims, " Governor Rick Scott said.

"While we can never completely heal from the pain of such loss, we continue to be reminded of each life taken in Orlando and their individual impact on so many. We mourn with the families and loved ones as they grieve, and ask all Floridians to continue praying for those affected by the terror attack in the coming days. This memorial will be a place to remember and honor their lives.”
