Thoughts and Prayers for Las Vegas Victims

Our Deepest Condolences

Like many of us I awoke this morning to the tragic and awful news about a mass shooting incident in Las Vegas.  From a hotel window high above a nearby concert venue, a lone gunman sprayed hundreds of rounds of automatic weapons fire at 22,000 concert attendees.  Nearly 60 people were killed and over 500 were wounded. 

Such random violence is a personal tragedy of unimaginable proportions for those killed or injured and their families.  For those, not physically injured it was a horrific and deeply traumatizing experience which may have lasting emotional and psychological impacts.  Such incidents are heartbreaking for the society itself.

NACRJ stands with the victims.  We extend our condolences and support for all those impacted and their familiies.  You are in our thoughts and prayers.
