Transcript for Las Vegas shooting victims remembered on 5-year anniversary
- It's been five years, five years since all of our lives changed forever and our city and our state changed forever. Five years ago today, a heinous act of violence rained down on our city, our state, and our country. 58 plus two people were killed that night. But five years later, we will never forget their light. The victims of this senseless act of violence, their families and friends will forever be in our hearts and prayers. And we will never forget, never forget the outpouring of love, kindness, and support from Las Vegas, our state, and across the country and the globe. Because of this support and the nonstop dedication of those in our community to protect one another and heal together, we will forever be Vegas strong. God bless you. God bless each of the families that are here with us today. - Resilience is defined as the ability to adapt to difficult situations, to gather the strength to overcome challenges. Resilience is what defines us as a community as we gather this morning on the fifth year anniversary of 1 October. Our community includes not only those of you who live here in Southern Nevada. It also includes everyone who was here that night for the Route 91 Festival, the injured, the family members of those who lost their lives. A cross-section of people came from all over the United States to enjoy some music and have a good time. One of our own officers, 34-year-old Charleston Hartfield, was with his wife Veronica at the concert. When the shots rang out, Charlie immediately took action to save lives of others until a bullet ultimately took his life. We also need to remember and honor the stories of all the everyday heroes that night, those who took care of the person next to them despite not even knowing their names, those who banded together to escape the hail of bullets. They too were heroes in the face of evil. Charlie shared some of his life's lessons with us while working at LBMPD that seem especially impactful this morning. Find a purpose. Be of service to others. And inspire others by your actions. So many of you spoke volumes that night with your actions to help others and protect others. Charlie would have been especially proud of you. You are showing your resilience this morning by being here and supporting each other. We were all changed that night. Together as a community, we can remain resilient. Together as a community, we will remain Vegas strong.
