Watch the Pulse survivor walk again for the first time.

Pulse survivor Angel Colon posted a video on his Facebook timeline that shows him taking his first unassisted steps since the Orlando shooting. In the video, Colon can be seen walking independently, and after a few steps, he's greeted by a warm embrace, while applause and cheers fill the room.

The video has warmed the hearts of people everywhere and is a positive message representing some of the growth we've seen since Orlando.

Earlier this month, we got to watch as Colon took the stage again for the first time since the tragedy. Alongside him was the officer who helped pull Colon out of the horrific scene.

Take a look at Colon's first steps below:

Ahhhh Took my first Steps all by Myself!!!!!! SO HAPPY!!! #OrlandoStrong #AngelStrong #LoveIsLove
