Last night an outdoor country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, was interrupted by bursts of automatic gunfire from the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel. More than 50 people were killed and more than 400 injured (as of recent reporting), whether by gunfire or by being trampled as 22,000 concert goers ran for their lives.
Without doubt, this was an act of terror, because 22,000 people were forced to run for their lives and the entire country awoke this morning to face the absolute horror of this act.
No matter what the “facts” subsequently reveal, no matter whether We the People ever learn the “facts” about what happened or who committed this act and why, the simple fact remains that thousands were terrorized for whatever reason.
Condolences and prayers for the families of the deceased and for those who were wounded.
Thanks beyond measure and prayers for the first responders who undoubtedly saved lives last night.
