My Condolences to the Las Vegas Shooting Victims

To my American brothers and sisters who are hurting right now because they lost a loved one during the shooting in Las Vegas I offer my heartfelt and sincere condolences.

 

To my American brothers and sisters who were wounded during the terrible event in Las Vegas, I pray for your speedy recovery.

 

You aren’t alone, I think I can speak for most all of us, you are all in our thoughts and prayers. It’s what we do.

 

I don’t even know what to say anymore, and for me to be at a loss for words is unusual. We are all going through some extremely dark and trying times. Not just in our country, but around the world.

 

It sometimes feel like we are losing the fight against evil. However, when I see pictures of the brave men and women. Helping complete strangers to safety or medical attention. My heart swells to almost bursting. This is America, and in the face of tragedy, this is what we do.

 

I could debate gun control. I could throw blame here or there, but I’m too sad. Yes, there needs to be something done without hindering anyone’s rights and we will get there. We will figure it out and come up with a solution. It’s what we do.

 

We may not get it right on the first try. We won’t please everyone. But we will do it, there’s no doubt in my mind. It’s what we do.

 

All I want to say is, you aren’t alone. Your brothers and sisters are standing with you in your grave time of sorrow and need. It’s What We Do.

  1. I’m from Spain, although I lived my early years in the US and my condolence too, it is a tragedy, and who know what this old man was thinking the only thing is that he shot himself, I prefered if they capturing alive, have the trial, and then go to the electric chair.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. You’ve brought up a very interesting thought which I’ve been thinking about often over the past years. Ever since 9/11 actually. These horrendous “terrorist” attacks, or even immoral attacks not attributed to “terrorists” whatever the case maybe.

      I don’t feel they should even be categorized as “your country, or my country” They seem to be more attacks on humanity specifically. They are attacks on the world community, or all of humanity. I hope I’m able to express myself I hope what I’m trying to say makes sense.

      I don’t know anymore what causes people to do what they do. I’m also with you on what I think is one of the worst parts of the situation. That we can’t punish him. Although I’m sure he will meet his judgement but I’m sure the families of those who died would want justice and they were denied even that.

      It’s a sad world, I wish I knew a way to guide others away from such horror. You want to take your own life, go for it, just don’t take innocent people with you. Knowing those people have been robbed of the simplest pleasures in life like falling in love, creating a family or whatever really makes me sad.

      How do the authorities protect us from further catastrophes like this? Never enjoy an outdoor concert again? It just boggles my mind. The gun issue has never been a passionate cause for me. I believe in the right to own guns, however, how in the heck did such a dangerous accessory become legal?

      Do you need it to hunt? I don’t think that’s a good idea. How about protect your family? Nope, not unless you plan on taking half the neighborhood along with the burglar, not to mention cutting them in half. So why would any sane person need the “bump-fire” stock on their “assault” rifle? COME ON! I was born at night but not last night!

      Anyway, thank you for your kind words. I’m sure they’re appreciated by many.

      1. I was in New York when 99/11 happened, I can still remember where I was, I was getting out of the shower room when I heard a guy say “you saw that? you fucking saw that?” Those words I don’t forget, and that is when I went to the “common” room where the t.v was and saw the hole thing, they actually put us under a barn where there was sort of a bunker, and in one sense I agree with you since here in Spain is illegal to have guns, unless you are a hunter and get a shotgun, at the same time it is writtent in your own constitution the secondamendment. I do believe in the law, although some laws are worst than others, it is still the law.
        I’ve been in the Spanish military, deployed and know the power of those guns, but I often though why a civilian would want to have an arsenal to go to war.
        Yet again, these type of cases even as tragic as they are, if you have the statistics, how many people have been shot in Chicago because of gun violence, they are in the thousands. So I don’t know the answer to how to stop violence, because violence is perpetrated by individual people, humans, and throughout history violence, wars has always existed, and to another point, I won’t even consider humans the 9/11 attackers, nor this nutcase in Vegas.
