Tragedy strikes again as another music event was under attack by a gunman. I know a lot of people on my social media have been saying this, but I agree with them, this hits really close to home. Too close to home.
I have friends who work for the festival, who work with the country artists, who are on stage with the artists, who are the promoters. I’m just very lucky none of my friends are hurt or worse dead.
I’m having a hard time understanding why this world is the way it is. Why is it that we have to worry about our safety at a music festival? Why do we have to worry about someone else and their guns? Why? I’m not understanding this. I know I’m not the only one asking these questions, but when it comes down to it, we have to ask why.
Then we have to ask how. How can we move forward? How can we prevent this in the future? How can we protect the true concert goers?
Without the concert goers, no one has a job.
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this tragedy. Near and far, I think this hits too close to home for a lot of people. And hopefully, I’ll be able to contribute to do something about this.
