April first is of course April Fool’s Day and this year it was also Easter. That made the day even more interesting.
For Las Vegas, it also marked the six month anniversary of the Route 91 shooting. To honor what we call the 58 Angels (those that died that night) there was a vigil where we walked around the event grounds. Six months seems a long time ago but also it seems like yesterday.
The emotions ran high. Some of us even found a little bit of closure.
What surprised me was the community support. Many of the people that were at the vigil were from the community and had no ties to the concert. It’s been there the whole time, I simply couldn’t see it until now.
I’m glad I saw it, it gave me a renewed sense of home in my community. Sometimes what were looking for is right in front of us.
