On a day when we’ve gotten the most tragic example yet of how much damage one deranged person can do with guns, we’re also getting a reminder of how the vast majority of humanity is the opposite — caring, selfless, and empathetic.

After the mass shooting that left at least 58 dead and 515 injured in Las Vegas, Mayor Carolyn Goodman told residents what they could do to help: give blood.

At an early morning press conference, she requested:

“What we ask for is blood, that’s the main thing right now, is that if our people want to do something and they are healthy, then please donate blood.”

The people of Las Vegas were listening.

The lines at blood banks were around the block this morning, with some locations reporting a three hour wait! See some of the photos of Battle Born State residents stepping up (below):
