After the Terrorist Attack in Orlando, Theme Park Employees Came Together To Show Support

One of the victims of Saturday night's terrorist attack was Luis Vielma, 22, of Florida. Vielma was employed at Universal Orlando Resort and worked the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride at the park's Wizarding World of Harry Potter. To show support and to stand in solidarity with Vielma and the other victims of the attack, theme park employees from across the country are taking pictures making the "heart hands" symbol.

Kevin O'Brien, a cast member at Walt Disney World, compiled the pictures in a series of Facebook posts. Images from Universal Orlando, Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Legoland, among others, were submitted.

Author J.K. Rowling also tweeted a moving memorial to Vielma:

In the face of unspeakable horrors, it's always good to remember that there are still good people out there who seek to spread love to counter hate.

Rest in peace, Luis.
