    You're absolutely right. They paid money for entertainment and didn't go there expecting this. Good on you for donating.

    You're right, blood donations are very, very important at a time like this with so many being affected all at once. Good on you for donating.

    Horrible tragedy what happened. It is really amazing to see how much money has been donated in 12 hours though.

    Donated. Thanks to all those that did also. Every little bit helps. Even if you think it's small, many people each giving a little equals to a lot.

    And here is a link to contact your elected officials. It's time to remove these weapons of war from our society. How many men, women, and children have to die before we come to our senses?

    I feel very sad for the victims. What happened was a horrible tragedy. However, poor people in the third world needs my money more, so I'm gonna spend my money there instead.

    If in the area just donate blood and never post about thoughts and prayers if you can and don't. Blood doesn't cost you money.

    this has been discussed many times, and yes they do make a difference according to the victims. Are you a victim? no? then STFU making judgements when you don't know anything about anything :mad:

    I'm not too clued up on healthcare in America, but I heard that some of the survivors can't afford there hospital bills?

    Doesn't the government cover tragedy related health care?

    My parents were in Vegas for this so it made it feel personal. I will donate, but probably through Red Cross. I'm always wary of any donation sites, and hate that people become rich through them. No charity site should be a private business IMO... but I digress.

    When Americans die, I can't help but think that these very same people are the ones who support a government that puts the rest of the world through far worse horrors than this little Vegas accident... As I wrote earlier, this is horrible, but you people should learn from this. Instead of just feeling sorry for yourselves, you should realize that this was nothing compared to the horrible things your government is doing around the world. If you wanna stop these insane killings, then start by confronting your government, because they make ISIS look like a kindergarten. Unless, of course, you're fine with mass killings as long as they're not taking place on American soil?

    Don't get me wrong, I have already clearly expressed my condolences and I feel very sorry for the innocent victims who had to go through this. I just want to make people aware that their pain is being felt all over the world and their government is responsible. Innocent people die in America and it's horrible, but in no way is it worse than when innocent people die in Iraq or anywhere else.
