We never think anything bad can happen to us, but the reality of it is we never know. We live our lives day by day, move by move. We can methodically plan or outline the way we would like our lives to be and it can all change in an instant. We live through our happy moments and our devastating moments. Through our happy moments is when we enjoy life with others. Through our devastating moments is when we learn and come together as humans. In my opinion, these are the things that makes a life worth living.
October 1st 2017 is when yet another tragedy happened. As everyone knows, Route 91 Harvest Festival was attacked by a gunman in the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. Thousands of people were enjoying their time at a concert when all of a sudden, 58 people were killed and hundreds injured. Seeing the aftermath of this event (and all other tragic events) is always devastating. It is heartbreaking to even fathom the amount of pain and suffering of all families involved. At this point, I am not sure what I can say to uplift spirits. All I can say is take your time to heal and do what is best for you in order to be okay.
I had learned yesterday that one of my colleagues was a victim in this tradegy. In hopes to help his family heal, there has been a gofundme page created. Please see the link below if you would like to donate.
