WATCH: Man Who Handmade 58 Wooden Crosses to Honor Las Vegas Victims Returns One Year Later

Published

on

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.

These crosses have now been placed permanently in a museum, but to commemorate the one-year anniversary, Zanis made a trip back to Vegas: with 58 new crosses.

Western Journal reports:

As he places the crosses at the memorial site, he said it’s all he can do not to cry.

Zanis wants the Las Vegas community to know that they are remembered, that each name on the cross is important.

“Just doing it for the families to show that we do care,” Zanis told KVVU-TV. “It’s been a year and just imagine what a family’s gone through.”

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.

Crosses return to Welcome sign

Promise Broken: 60 Percent of Americans Will Suffer Tax Hike Under Biden’s Plan

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan.

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan. We are now seeing that Biden lied. The Tax Policy Center released new data on the realities of Biden’s tax proposals and found that Biden’s policies will slam middle and low-income taxpayers right where it hurts. The organization says that 99.8 percent of Americans earning between $500,00 and $1million will pay an average of $8,810 more in taxes each year under Biden’s tax plan. This might be in keeping with Biden’s campaign pledge that only “the rich” will pay more. But the TPC also found that people who make far less will also get hit under Biden. The center says that people making between $75,000 and $500,00 will also get pinched. This is not as a result of direct taxes on income but of the impact of the other hikes in rates, such as the corporate tax rise. According to the Daily Mail: Three-quarters of households earning between $75,000 and $100,000 annually would face paying an additional $440 per year in taxes under Biden’s tax hikes, according to the data released last week. About 69 percent of those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 would see their yearly tax bill rise by $830 on average, according to the analysis. Meanwhile, 83.7 percent of those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 would see an increase of $2,040 on average. But most Americans will be impacted indirectly by Biden’s giant tax hike. “For those looking to see if Biden kept his promise to not raise taxes for those making $400,000 or less, the answer is: Mostly, but not entirely,” wrote Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “Including corporate tax increases, most households would pay more in 2022. About three-quarters…

N.J. School District Reverses Decision to Delete Holiday Names after Massive Backlash

A left-wing New Jersey school district has been forced to reverse its decision to delete holiday names from school calendars.

A left-wing New Jersey school district has been forced to reverse its decision to delete holiday names from school calendars after a massive backlash from the community. Last week, the Randolph Board of Education decided to delete the names of all school holidays because names like “Christmas” were too divisive. But after a backlash from the community, the district reversed its ill-conceived policy. The district’s move came after they canceled Columbus Day and renamed it “Indigenous People’s Day.” But the discussion soon moved to the claim that all the holidays were racist and needed to be dealt with. By the June 10 meeting, the district decided to cancel all the holiday names and simply call them a “day off.” But on Monday, the board had to face the music. According to NJ.com: Following a nearly four-hour meeting Monday, which included public comment from about 50 people, the board voted 8-1 to adopt the motion to restore the calendar to the way it was before Columbus Day and the other holiday names were taken off. Members also voted to amend the motion so that it would include sending the calendar to a committee for review and to gain input on it from a community survey. The idea was proposed by board member Vernetha Hope Powell, who said she wanted to community to be involved in the process. Most members of the public who spoke during the meeting wanted to have the entire calendar changed back to the way it was, with a smaller group calling for only Columbus Day to be called something else, with one suggesting that it should be called “Italian Heritage Day.” “We live in a cancel culture and we are very sensitive to that and we don’t want to see that in Randolph,” one resident said during…
