October first.

A tragedy.

A day that I will remember forever.
A day that We will remember forever.

I was born there.
I grew up there.
That’s my hometown.

This unreal, unimaginable tragedy happened in my hometown.

My parents got married in that hotel, where my history begun.

This unreal, unimaginable tragedy happened where my history begun.

My father knew many of the injured, living and dead.
Pain, tears, suffering.
He knew them; they are gone forever.

This unreal, unimaginable tragedy caused my father unreal, unimaginable pain.

Innocent people, trying to have a fun time.

They deserve your love and thoughts.
Give them your love,
Keep them in your thoughts.

October first.
May they forever, rest in peace.

I was born and raised in Las Vegas. Seeing something so terrible happen in the place where you were raised is unreal and unimaginable. My father is a Metro police officer and he was severely affected by the tradegdy that occured. 

The least we can do for the victims and families of the victims is to send them our love and keep them in our thoughts. Never forgotten, 10.1.17.
