The tears of joy when the Vegas Golden Knights made NHL history last night (Oct. 10) as the first team ever to open its inaugural season with a 3-0 streak of wins — but they were mixed with tears of sadness when the expansion franchise honored the victims and first responders of the gun massacre that killed 58 people and injured more than 500. Their names were projected onto the ice as each member of the team escorted a doctor, nurse, fireman, police officer onto a carpet at center ice for the national anthem. Vegas Strong logos were everywhere in the T-Mobile Arena and on small towels given to every person in the sell-out crowd of 17,500 with an additional 500 standing — all of whom marked the 58-second silence that was totally quiet.

Jewel recently appeared here for our St, Rose Dominican Dignity health fundraising dinner.
The outpouring of love and compassion continues over the entire Vegas valley for the victims of Sunday’s gun massacre at the Rt 91 Harvest Festival fairgrounds.
