I’m sick to my stomach today. For four years, I was a UNLV Rebel and Las Vegas became my second home. To a lot of Hawaii residents, the joke was that Vegas was the 9th island. I met my husband there, I made lifelong friends, and we have family who also live in Vegas. I am so grateful that everyone I know is safe but as this senseless violent shooting unfolds, so many loved ones are going to hear the news they lost someone and that utterly makes me heartsick. But beneath this sadness and heartache, I’m incredibly angry too. We’ve had a long list of mass shootings here in the US and I refuse to accept this as the new normal. We must refuse to accept this as the new normal. I don’t want to just hear remarks about how this is a tragedy, I also want to see action being taken by our legislators because enough is enough.
Had the chance to check out @the.wing and no lie, it is girl heaven. Thanks @josiejonesie for the invite! 💕
