Blonde4ever returns from her annual fall trip and wonders if it is time to return to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas.
I have an opinion that I wish to express. This is just one woman’s opinion. I mean no disrespect to anyone involved in this situation. Truly I don’t.
I flew into Vegas last week after a long and trying travel day. I was exhausted. I was ouchy. But like all other Vegas aficionados, my tiredness and pain receded with the first sight of the Vegas Strip. I was so happy to be there that I forgot. I saw the beautiful golden towers of Mandalay Bay and Delano come into view and still, I did not remember. It wasn’t until I saw the giant “Vegas Strong” sign on the side of the building that it hit me “Oh yes…the Tragedy” and my heart hurt. This was repeated multiple times during my ten-day trip. I would be enjoying myself somewhere, completely oblivious to all the world’s problems, and then something with “Vegas Strong” written on it would come into my line of vision and make me feel sad.
And in the case of Vegas, it is detrimental. In order to promote the city, it needs to be viewed as a safe and carefree place. Yes, we all adore Vegas and want to display love and support towards it, but in my opinion, the best way to do that now is to allow people to return to normal. Let’s get back to the reasons why we come to Vegas in the first place. Why do we come? We come to have fun, to relax, and forget the troubles of the world. We don’t come to be reminded of horrible disasters.
