People always say that what happens in Vegas should stay there, but they had no idea of what was about to unfold in the past week. A gunman took it upon himself to go crazy and create mayhem which resulted in the deaths of more than 50 people. The idea that heading to a city that is known for being glamorous and fun is really frightening. It makes you feel as if this can happen anywhere at this point.
When things like this happen, the first thing that is reported is the fact that the perpetrator had mental issues. This is unfair to all of the people out there who manage their mental illness well. Think about it this way: If you had controlled bipolar disorder and you live a typical life without incident, would you really want to be grouped into a box with a guy who decided to end the lives of so many innocent people?
Not only is this a difficult time for those who were at the scene, the families of the perpetrator and the victims and first responders, but this has taken a huge toll on America as a whole. Will anyone ever be able to walk into a Las Vegas casino again without worrying about becoming a victim. The saddest thing is the fact that this is not something anyone can predict, so there really is no way to protect yourself, unless you decide to never leave the house again.
For now, this story is the talk of the city. At some point, things will die down and it will no longer be what happens on the front page. Even so, there is no way that anyone will ever forget what happened. This has had an effect on people all over.
