On the evening of Sunday, October 1, 59 people were murdered and more than 500 others injured when they were fired upon as they attended a concert in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The U.S. Mission in Australia is deeply grieved by this terrible act of violence and we mourn the lives so tragically lost and forever affected on that night.
We have been touched by the kind words of friends and well-wishers here in Australia.

“Our unity cannot be shattered by evil. Our bonds cannot be broken by violence. And though we feel such great anger at the senseless murder of our fellow citizens, it is our love that defines us today – and always will, forever.”
