Illinois Man Travels to Orlando with 49 White Crosses, in Wake of Mass Shooting at LGBT Nightclub


That’s what people are saying about Greg Zanis, an Illinois man who traveled more than 1,000 miles from his home to Orlando, Florida, in the wake of a mass shooting at an LGBT nightclub there last week.

He brought with him 49 crosses – one for each of the gunman’s victims.

Zanis reportedly erected the crosses outside Orlando Health Medical Center, and brought markers so that resident could leave messages on the crosses, which were named for the victims.
