It has been two years since a gunman opened fire at a Las Vegas music festival, killing 58 and wounding more than 400 others. On the second anniversary, school children at St. Viator Parish School in Las Vegas resumed what they did the morning after the shooting: they prayed the rosary.
Standing in the school’s outdoor plaza, at the end of classes, the entire student body along with faculty and staff, as well as some parents, gathered to pray a decade of the rosary.
The school will hold remembrances all week in light of the anniversary of the shooting that shocked the city — and the nation.
“This week, we honor those who lost their lives, their families, the survivors and our beloved community,” says Mrs. Tracy Brunelle, Principal. “We come together in reflection, discussion and prayer.
“We will not forget,” she adds. “A year later, we are stronger.”
They’ve even created their own hashtag in response: #ViatorStronger #VegasStronger
