The tragedy of the Orlando nightclub shootings has been dominating the news this week. 49 men and women lost their lives to this senseless attack.
Those in Orlando and around the country grieve for those lost with memorials and acts of love. A vigil was set up along the roundabout outside the nightclub where the shooting occurred. The nightclub’s property management company wanted to ensure the safety of those grieving and make the vigil a safe and comforting place. They reached out to Straight Line Southern, a striping company based in Orlando, for help.
Mark Letourneau took it upon himself to create a stunning visual around the vigil that would hopefully inspire love and not hate.
Letourneau, a 30 year striping veteran who is a partner in Straight Line Southern and Asphalt Sealers, spent 9 hours getting this just right, laying approximately 15 gallons paint.
The markings had 17 sides and 6 colors for a total of 102 individual sections. The sections represent the 102 victims (49 dead, 53 injured)
“It just feels good to do something,” Letourneau says of his work.
