Orlando lei weaversGovernor Ige joined hundreds of volunteers on Maui last month to weave a mile-long “Lei of Aloha for Orlando” after the deadly June 12 shooting at Pulse nightclub in which at least 49 people were killed and 53 people were injured.

One organizer told NBC News, “Bullets killed those 49 people, (but) love is our weapon that you can never kill.” A Maui delegation has delivered the lei to Florida.
