The Las Vegas community was in need of healing and now people have a place to do just that after construction was completed on a healing garden.
The garden was unveiled Friday night, after volunteers worked around the clock to create it in less than a week’s time. Everything was donated.
“This has become a center of humanity that is setting a standard around the world,” Mayor Carolyn Goodman said.
There is a remembrance wall, where people can leave photos behind of those lost.
“You feel so heartsick when you see the wall and the lives that were lost. It’s just so senseless,” said Jamie Dehlem, of Henderson, Nevada.
There are also 58 trees of life planted there to honor the 58 people who were killed in the Las Vegas mass shooting Sunday night. Residents said the space is needed.
“It’s a place of love. It’s a place of hope. It’s a place of strength,”
