Student’s Corner: Reflection on the Las Vegas Tragedy

Student’s Corner: Reflection on the Las Vegas Tragedy

 

In the midst of the tragedy that claimed the lives of 59 souls in Las Vegas on Sunday, October 1, 2017, I wanted to reflect this week on exactly what it means to be alive in this world. We get so wrapped up in our careers, our commitments, and our goals that we lose sight of the most precious gift we are given without trying: life.

 

We wake up each day, hold our friends and family close, and are encouraged to persevere through some of the toughest challenges life throws at us. We lost a member of the legal community and Lawyers Club in this tragic event, Jennifer Irvine. I had the pleasure of witnessing Jennifer speak at a California Western event last year, and I remember her encouraging students such as myself to persevere through the semester. She had taken the time to reach back to her community, and for that I am grateful.

 

I hope that we all are able to come together in this tragic circumstance and find a togetherness as women and as human beings, determined to live our lives with a purpose and a gratefulness like never before.
