The Victims of Las Vegas
So, what do we know? We know that a man gathered over 30 high-powered guns in his hotel room in Las Vegas. He checked into a suite and scoped the line of fire for four solid days. And, for reasons that we may never understand, he deliberately and continuously shot thousands of bullets into the a crowd of people attending a concert. He injured over 500 people and killed 59.
Joe’s Perspective: This is senseless, sad and disturbing. Why one person would want to deliberately kill so many people that he doesn’t even know is difficult to comprehend. Each one of those individuals had a name and a life and family and friends. It would be easy to distance ourselves from this scenario because we probably don’t know any of these people. I simply provide this video to humanize this terrible event in American history. Everyone of these individuals will be missed by many someones and we should collectively mourn this loss of life.
