On September 26 there was no flutter of white doves, sounding trumpets, or singing gondoliers as there was on May 3, 1999 when the five diamond luxury Venice themed hotel and casino opened up. On this night there was an unforgettable event that will haunt Las Vegas and the rest of the world forever. With almost no warning the 36 story, 475 ft tall, 138,684 square ft casino, The Venetian, mysteriously collapsed. Thousands of people who were just living their lives were killed, almost instantly. There was chaos, and panic through out the Las Vegas valley and the world. News stations and newspapers reported immediately what happened but, it seemed that none of them had the same story, it was a terrorist attack, it was an explosion, it was poor building construction, it was the aliens, or was it a missile. It didn’t matter what it was it was a tragedy.
The mood of Las Vegas has changed over the last couple of weeks , and for the most part is very depressing and quiet as the city mourns. The churches have started to fill up, funerals are constant, there is vigil’s all of the time, schools are closed. The city almost sounds peaceful except for the constant jets flying over, military and federal patrols, random stop checks, a military base of operations has been built on the strip. Marshall law is in effect and Vegas is considered a no fly zone. Las Vegas has the full support of the United States military and other federal agencies. Anyone who may know anything is being pulled in for questioning. Federal raids are happening all over the city, those who dwell in the Underworld and criminal activities know its not easy being a thug in Vegas.
Government officials from all over the United States including the President and Foreign Governments offer condolences and offer aid. They make very sorrow speeches and promise justice. The news agencies begin to report that this was in fact the work of a terrorist group and the Venetian was destroyed by multiple suicidal bombers at strategic locations. The president asks for more aid to fight the war against terrorism. More troops
will be deployed. Even though Vegas had it’s Vengeance the military and federal agencies are still here and don’t look like they are leaving any time soon.
Despite what was broadcasted and reported, the Silence of the Blood maybe broken. If you have any questions please contact me.
