Throwback Monday

                                                    


So much is going on in our world right now and we just need to heal and come back to love.
Usually I'm not this into my feelings on the blog, but my day job is in news and covering the tragedy in Las Vegas last week and the devastating fires in the Bay Area today, I feel this is the musical hug we all need.

Mass Shooting at Las Vegas Country Music Festival is Deadliest in American History

theheavy.com

Waking up to the news in Las Vegas broke my heart.
You all know news is my day job, and working the story and already knowing how to cover stories like this hurt my heart because this is becoming so common.
I shouldn't know how to cover a story like this.
The shooting in Vegas struck a chord more than before because I was just there. Vegas has always been a place I felt safe.
Also, to take into account that this occurred at a music festival, as a concert and festival attendee this hurt even more.
Is nowhere safe?

The shooting killed about 58 people and injured 515.
 Kids were there, on their parents' shoulders.
These people just wanted to see their favorite artists perform at the Route 91 Harvest festival. They were all there for one thing. music.
This all occurred while country star Jason Aldean performed.
Since then celebrities expressed their sorrow and pain following this ordeal.

Prayers for all those affected, but we all know now that prayers aren't enough. We say this too often now.

Throwback Monday

                                   I was going to refrain from posting a throwback this week due to the tragedy in Las Vegas. However, due to the recent passing of Tom Petty, I felt this song was very appropriate for the mood of today and what we all need as human beings during this time.
