A Senseless, Evil Act

By Staff | Oct 4, 2017

As we work hard to make tomorrow’s deadline – to give you the local news for the week – a tragedy is unfolding on a national level. We are sure our readers, like us, have been tuned in to the breaking news all day. A gunman, shooting from his Las Vegas hotel room window, takes the lives of multiple people, innocently attending a country music concert. As of our editorial deadline, more than fifty lives have been lost. More than 500 people have been injured.

Countless lives have been changed forever.

We are baffled.

Why? What possesses someone to commit an evil act?

A motive is just one of so many unanswered questions. Frankly, some questions may never get answered.

What do we know?

We know, as Americans, we need to come together. We need to hope and pray for a better tomorrow; we need to act and do what we can to ensure that better tomorrow happens. From small acts of kindness and helping one another, we can work to bring peace in our own small circles and communities, and hopefully that will expand beyond our borders.
