What happened in Vegas could not “stay in Vegas" !


SHOCK! is literally the term that can best describe what happened in Vegas on the night of Oct. 2nd, 2017. That peaceful city, full of lights, love & fun ... is now the victim of “Terrorism”. 

Yes Terrorism! Although there has been no confirmation yet whether ISIS was behind it or not, those actions prove today that terrorism has no color, no race and certainly no religion. 
This Is an ACT of Barbarism against Humanity !

One week ago, I was on duty in a Work Trip in Las Vegas. Our team stayed at the Excalibur Hotel, right next to the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, where the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history happened taking the lives of nearly 60 innocent people and injuring hundreds !

While I was there, I felt that VEGAS is a global city. I saw people from every corner of the globe. Asians, Europeans, Americans and even Arabs… And for that particular reason, I consider the attacks to be not only against the USA or US citizens… but also an attack against the entire world, and NO what happened in Vegas could not “stay in Vegas” anymore.

Those attacks affected every global citizen dreaming of peace and serenity in this world. Didn’t we get enough of violence already? When is this going to stop?

Let us reflect quickly on what could be one of the reasons behind what happened.

As some of you may know, The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution reads:

   “ A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed”.

James Madison originally proposed the Second Amendment shortly after the Constitution was officially ratified as a way to provide more power to state militias, which today are considered the National Guard. It was deemed a compromise between Federalists — those who supported the Constitution as it was ratified — and the anti-Federalists — those who supported states having more power. Having just used guns and other arms to ward off the English, the amendment was originally created to give citizens the opportunity to fight back against a tyrannical federal government.


Now it’s useless to say that in 2017 many things has changed. In the modern role of the government, it is necessary to keep the “monopoly” of power in the hands of the STATE (Max Weber - Le Savant ET le politique). 
After all, those are the basics and foundations of any “society” as stated by J.J. Rousseau when he identifies the “Social Contract” between people as a vow by individuals to create a well-organized society where they deliberately delegate powers to the STATE or the Sovereign in order to be protected and safe. 
There might be those who say: it’s a human right to possess arms… yes but there is a greater human right which is the right of LIFE! 

Something must be done at least to limit crimes such as these and to preserve the security and safety of all mankind. Maybe banning the possession of Arms is the beginning of the end of Violence. Why do we have policemen to protect us if everyone needs to protect him/her self in society?

Finally, it came to my attention how the Las Vegas Strip, full of lights, was dwelling in darkness on that tragic night with one shiny billboard saying:
 LOVE … 



Love is the only weapon that needs to be possessed and it will be victorious.
