We here at 3300+ Climbing in Central Florida are not new to these terrible shootings that have shaken this country. We're horrified, sorrowful, empathetic and simply disgruntled by the heinous act committed in Las Vegas. But while it may be easy to succumb to the feeling of hopelessness that results from such a tragedy, we cannot. When an unassuming security guard fired his weapon in an Orlando nightclub last year, killing 49 innocent people, our community unified in a ways I can't even describe. Our country held hands and offered unconditional support to those who needed it most. We prayed and mourned and cried together. And this time around, things will not be any different.
Today, we stand with you, Las Vegas. No matter the religion or the race, we pray for you and send you unmeasurable amounts of love and support. Amongst floods of support messages being sent your way, our message to you is simple: 3300+ Climbing is with you and so is the rest of this country. We promise that you are not alone today, tomorrow or any day after.
