It has been a year since Las Vegas experienced the biggest mass shooting in modern American History. During the closing night of the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, Jason Aldean’s set came to a sudden halt when random and continuous gunshots were heard in the venue. It was later discovered that this open fire was coming from a 32nd floor window of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.
This tragedy resulted in 58 deaths and over 800 injuries. The attack at the music festival left the entire world stunned, as people rushed to donate money and blood to a GoFundMe made for the people of Las Vegas. A year later, those mourning are choosing to honor the victims rather than further questioning the shooter as this should be a day of remembrance. At the #1October Sunrise Remembrance ceremony this morning, 58 doves were released. Each one carried the name of a victim of the attack on October 1st. A memorial held this morning in the Las Vegas strip was live streamed online.
This mass shooting carries on to be the biggest in Modern American history, but as time pasts, people are striving for stricter gun laws in order to prevent something like this from happening again.
