It's been six weeks since the deadly shooting in Orlando earlier this summer that left 49 people dead and over 50 people injured. Now one survivor has recently taken quite a large step on his road to recovery.
Angel Colon, a zumba enthusiast from the Orlando area, stepped back onto the stage this past Thursday to perform at the Zumba Instructor Network conference for the first time since being shot at Pulse.
Glow sticks and bracelets illuminated the crowd as 7,500 other zumba instructors watched Colon took the stage alongside Omar Delgado, the officer who helped to pull him out of the nightclub that day. Colon talked about his life since the shooting and how thankful he is for all the love and support he's received along the way as he recovers from his injuries.
The evening was not only a dedication to Colon, but also a memorial to the life of Angel Luis Candelario-Padro, who also was a zumba instructor who lost his life that night.
