By now, I’m sure most of you have heard about the horrific mass shooting that took place on Sunday evening during Jason Aldean‘s set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. The lone gunman, by all accounts, was a normal guy who did something that has rattled people’s sense of safety and will likely cause people to stop and remember every time they purchase a concert ticket or festival pass for years to come.
It’s truly unimaginable and my heart goes out to everyone who was there or had family or friends at the festival. But out of the tragedy comes an unlikely hero who stood up in the middle of the horror and gave the literal middle finger to the shooter. And while I would never suggest anyone ever stand and be defiant while bullets whiz around your head, I kind of think this beer-swigging concertgoer is the hero we all need right now. Thank you, mystery man, for standing up and expressing how many of us feel right now.
