Awful Way to Start the Week October 2, 2017

Posted by geoff in News.

One source said there were 52 fatalities as a result of the evil idiot in Las Vegas. Let’s hope the count doesn’t rise above that.

Gotta say, this world we live in has been getting me down as of late. Anybody who wants to provide some good news in the comments would be most appreciated.

Very sad. I agree — things seem to be getting worse right now.

A bit of ‘good’ news… Chris Salcedo, who has the morning talk show on WBAP Radio that I listen to, had his sister and her husband on this morning. They, along with a some of their friends, were at this concert. When they all realized the noise was gun fire, the couples reached for each others and ran for cover as best they could. She and her husband found a trailer to climb under for the duration. At that time they did not know from where the gunfire was coming, but they figured if assailants ran by, that they would not take time to look under the trailer. None of their friends were injured, but they all witnessed many who were not as fortunate.

I believe there is good news in the midst of all this. The character and goodness of many decent and courageous human beings is on display for those who have their eyes open to it.

Here is a list of things anybody can do as a powerful response to all this. I copied the list from a Conservative Review article:

“One thing. One small thing.

If you can’t think of something, here are some ideas:
– Pray — don’t listen to the haters; praying makes the world better.
– Do something simple to make another human’s life easier.
– Pay for the next person in line.
– Call your mom/dad/son/daughter/friend and tell them you love them.
– Donate to a charity. ”

I’m hearing that lots of folks in and around Vegas are donating blood.
