The 30-second video entitled “Dear Orlando” appeared on the city of Tampa’s YouTube page on Friday.

Tampa-based artist Nicole Abbett contributed the drone footage used in the video from the Tampa Pride Parade on March 26, 2016, and a candlelight memorial in Ybor City on June 13, 2016. The video also features a shot of Tampa City Hall lit in rainbow colors.


The text on the video reads:

“Dear Orlando,

We Send Our Love.

#OrlandoStrong

Love, Tampa”

Abbett said she’s used her personal licensed drone for about three years. She’s been a freelance photographer for five years, and worked with Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn.

Monday marks one year since the Pulse nightclub shooting that killed 49 people and injured dozens.
