Two years later, some survivors are not yet back to work. Some of those injured are waiting for their next surgery. And widows are raising children alone while trying to balance their healing.
“All these people that think that you can just move on — you don’t,” says survivor Heather Gooze.
** Trigger Warning **
** Mass shooting in Vegas **
Las Vegas 2017 shooting is probably the closer event to what I have experienced (or I could have experienced) in my mind, in Paris, January 2015. The difference: reality and imaginary scenes mix together switching from one brain side to another. Vegas was real as are deadly records. What happened to survivors? How are they doing today? If you are reading this post and you know someone who was touched by the event, please, share link below. Blessings.
This is the fact told by chronicles :
The FBI has concluded its investigation of the Las Vegas mass shooting, the deadliest of its kind in modern US history. An FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit did not find a “single or clear motivating factor” for gunman Stephen Paddock’s actions, but concluded he was in financial trouble and had difficulty coping with his age. But before the agency announced its findings on Tuesday, the massacre unfolded as most of them do — in a storm of chaos and confusion. 58 people were killed and more than 850 injured when a gunman opened fire at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip on October 1, 2017. By the time the general public knew a shooting was underway, the gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, was already dead.

The aftermath of a mass shooting has become all too familiar: Funerals take place, obituaries are written, heroes are highlighted, hashtags are created, motives are questioned, guns and mental health are debated. There is often the painful breakdown of a parent who lost their child on the evening news, images of community members holding candles on the front page of newspapers, and soundbites of politicians calling for gun control on social media. A community’s physical pain and mourning are exposed.
