October 1, 2017: A Day Las Vegas Will Always Remember

Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary since the most horrific shooting in US history at Route 91 Harvest Festival. 58 killed and more than 800 people were injured. In honor of the victims, the iconic Las Vegas marquee and the glimmering casino lights went dark at 10:01pm for three minutes. Hundreds of people gathered around the site linking arms to show unity.

Earlier that evening, something astounding happened. The heavens parted as if to honor the fallen as well. Las Vegas local Nathan Wood-Lagos shared his videos and pictures that he captured. It left me speechless and gave me goosebumps.

We will never forget and we will always be #VegasStrong.
