Harry Potter Fan and Employee Honored

     On June 12, the United States was shaken by a terrible tragedy. Forty-nine people were murdered at a gay club in Orlando, Florida. Dozens more were wounded. A few of the people killed during the shooting were Harry Potter fans who worked at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. One of them was named Luis Vielma.

Luis Vielma

        A stranger paid tribute to him in a very heart-felt way. He created a figure of Luis Vielma using Pop!'s online customization tool where anyone can create a design. He has no plans to sell the figure. He just wants to offer it to Vielma's friends and family.

     In my opinion, this is a very kind way to remember Luis. Although I believe the other victims should be represented somehow, the fact that a figure of Vielma was created is a good way for his family and friends to remember him.
