Clark County School District students at Basic Academy of International Studies wore handmade bracelets to commemorate 1 October and show their Vegas Strong pride on the one year anniversary of the tragedy.
The school also had a Gift of Words wall in honor of 1 October where students could leave positive messages on sticky notes for one another and even hand them out to classmates.
Gov. Brian Sandoval encouraged all Nevadans to wear Vegas Strong clothing on 1 October, in honor and remembrance of the victims and survivors of the 1 October events nearly a year ago. Sandoval said, “Our great state has shown the country and indeed the world what Vegas Strong is every day for nearly a year. The events of 1 October affected so many and I think it is only right to show the world again how Vegas Strong Nevada is on the one year anniversary.”
