ORLANDO, Fla. –
A Chicago carpenter with a history of making crosses for the victims of mass shooting says he made 49 white crosses for the victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre to demonstrate the need for love and tolerance.
Greg Zanis said Sunday that making the crosses for the nightclub shooting was the most important work he has ever done. He has made crosses for the victims of the Columbine and Aurora shootings.
The crosses were set up outside the Orlando Regional Medical Center where many of the 53 shooting victims who survived were treated.
Zanis started making them a week ago when he first heard about the shooting, and he hit the road midweek to deliver them to Orlando.
