As some of you know, frequent blog contributor Dave lives in Las Vegas. He was kind enough to share these photos he took of the memorials that have been erected at the site of the shootings. Each cross represents a life taken way too early--a life that was enjoying what humans love to hear; music. So sad on so many levels. There are no easy answers. I didn't want to include this in my Sunday Surgery because it seems such a somber subject for that post. I'm glad Dave is safe. I'm still thinking about his city and the healing it faces in the coming years.
My son, who is greatly troubled by any mass shooting (he was around 8 for Columbine) -- still takes solace in Fred Roger's "Look for the Helpers" speech. I also think of it as "be the helper". Any time you can. Just help someone out. Be there and be kind.
