Condolences for Las Vegas
Newport Brushstrokes Fine Art sends condolences to the victims of the Las Vegas Shooting, October 1, 2017. To honor loved ones, we can have an oil on canvas portrait commemorating them. A portion of the sale will go to the charity of the family’s choice.
In this tragic story, there were heroic acts done by first responders and everyday people. Some people brought the wounded to their cars and drove them to the hospital. Others risked their lives or died while saving their loved ones or whoever was closest to them by using themselves as shields. That includes a man who saved his wife, but unfortunately, he passed away. One young woman, in a hospital, told Anderson Cooper, on CNN, that she was saved by a good Samaritan whose name she didn’t know his name and thanked him on TV. There was a sense of solidarity as people helped one another. I saw an interview done by Erin Burnett, also on CNN, with country singer Bryan Hopkins, a member of the group Elvis Monroe. He saved many concertgoers by taking them to a venue refrigerator. He filmed a video of himself and the people he saved for his parents, in case he died. Another example of a heroic act is when people lined up in big numbers to donate blood to those in need, since Monday. There was a woman who went because her blood type is O+, a universal donor. There are so many heartwarming stories like acts of kindness that I feel hope for the future.

Our sincerest sympathies to the victims’ families during this difficult time.
