Pray For Las Vegas

Posted by Michael on October 2nd, 2017

Pray for Las Vegas in the wake of last night’s shooting.

iTricks is not a political or general news site; we concentrate on magic and try pretty hard to ignore the rest of the world. To be honest, when I write iTricks every day I think of it as a place where members of the magic community, whether fans and performers of all levels can gather and learn about something they love while leaving behind the ugliness of the world for a moment.

Today, though, we can not shield ourselves from the real world. Las Vegas is the capital of magic in many ways… aspiring actors move to LA, magicians trying to make it big move to Las Vegas. We are not sure of the motives or details of last night’s shooting; we just know what everyone else has seen this morning: there was a horrific mass shooting at a country music festival that left many dead and injured hundreds more.

I’m suspending the rest of today’s normal posts; the Magic Bulletin was scheduled last night to post before I got up. I am sorry that it was released this morning as if nothing had happened. There is not much we can do today except for watch for news coming out of Las Vegas and hope that the many friends of iTricks in the city are safe today. If you believe in the power of prayer or good thought, then please pray for Las Vegas, its residents and the tourists visiting… at this point I am not sure there is anything else we can do.
