It’s hard to think of celebratory, fun things to do when pain persists over the massacre in Orlando last Sunday. So join hearts and hands at a special candlelight vigil from 7 to 10 p.m. tonight in Eau Gallie Square when the Space Coast Pride presents a vigil in honor of the victims, their friends, their family and the entire community.
