ORLANDO, Fla. -- As the  citizens of Orlando mark the one year remembrance and honor the 49 murder victims of the Pulse terrorism massacre, Orange County Sheriff's mounted unit horses James and Pete just had to participate.

They were willing to 49 ribbons stenciled on their coats to show their love on "Orlando United Day--A Day of Love and Kindness." They even posed by their stable to show their handiwork. Deputy Whitesell and Deputy Stevens were bursting with pride knowing James and Pete couldn't rein in their compassion for the victims and survivors.
