Stairway to Heaven

The news was on one of the TVs at work all this morning with updates about the mass shooting in Vegas. I don't quite know what to do with myself on days like this when so many other people have to suffer. My brother and his girlfriend were just in Vegas for four days celebrating her birthday. I am SO glad they'd already come back so I didn't have to worry. My coworker Brittany was visiting her parents there this weekend though so we were all bombarding her with texts at 6 am today. She's fine! I don't try to understand why things like this happen. It doesn't fit into my trust of the universe and I think it's too dark and evil to really wrap my mind around. I'll just keep sending prayers in that direction and damn do we need some better gun laws.
