The shooting yesterday in Las Vegas was senseless. It is a sad day for the world when a stranger decides to kill innocents for yet unknown reasons.  He was wealthy and his family has no idea why he did it.  The FBI has no clues as to the reasoning behind it.  There are senseless crimes everyday yet this was particularly harsh and senseless as they were just a group of people minding their own business enjoying a country and western concert.  Unfortunately, the death toll continues to rise.  What is so sad is that there are still bodies on the street because so many lost their lives.  It is understandable that this does not compare with war.  However, a senseless act of this magnitude has everyone off guard. The world should know that the Las Vegas community has risen to the occasion donating blood, volunteering assistance and in donations to a to help raise money for the victims.  As children we all do stupid and thoughtless things.  As we mature, we realize that many of the petty acts we committed made no sense.  They were pranks or just foolish acts of stupidity.  Whenever anything horrific occurs around the globe, the heads of nations offer their assistance and the UK even offered investigators to help.  I normally don’t write about such topics, but this is very sad and heart breaking.  So many people went to that concert looking forward to enjoying music and the company of their friends.  Now families are destroyed and many people will never feel the same again.  In the Good Gus series there were no senseless acts.  You can find the stories on Kindle for your child which if you feel sad about yesterday’s event, may not only cheer you up but brighten your child’s day.  If you are in Las Vegas and trying to find a way to cope with this senseless act, find your friends and loved ones who will comfort you.  If you feel like reading, remember “Misplaced Trust” is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.  Thank you to everyone who contacted me today to ask about my family and me.  It was very thoughtful.
