October 1st marked one year since the horrific and unexplained massacre at the Route 66 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.
You may have missed the anniversary this week amid all the noise about Kavanaugh, and it’s certainly been hard to pay attention to anything else, the way that story has dominated the news cycle.
But the families of the victims and many other Americans still took time out of their day on Monday to honor the lives lost on that fateful, unimaginably awful day.
One man who joined those mourning was Illinois carpenter Greg Zanis, whose humble contribution to the efforts to memorialize the Las Vegas victims last year made national news.
Zanis had traveled from Illinois with 58 hand-crafted wooden crosses, one for each victim, which were placed below the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign.

Such a beautiful and humbling act.
While so many Americans seem to be at each other’s throats these days, the Las Vegas shooting has already become a distant memory in our lightning-quick news cycle.
But for the families of the victims, their journey through grief is just beginning. God bless this man for taking the time to consider their suffering and serve them in this touching way.
