3 Years Later We Remember August 31, 2019 Here In The Permian Basin
All of us here in the Permian Basin will always remember August 31, 2019.
We all have different emotions about it, but one thing is certain, the way all of us here in the Permian Basin came together as a community will always be remembered.
WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER 7
We lost 7 precious souls that day in what will always be known as one of the Permian Basin's darkest days.
Three years later, we now reflect on that day with prayers and thoughts for all 7 victims and many others that were affected by the mass shooting that took place that day here in the Permian Basin. We are reminded 3 years later, that life is precious and every life has worth.
THE 'COMMUNITY WALL' REFLECTS A COMMUNITY TOGETHER
Three years ago, we here at Townsquare Media put up a 'Community Wall' in the parking lot of our studios. It was a 'Community Wall' where we invited everyone in the Permian Basin to come out and share their feelings and emotions by writing words of hope and love on the wall.
The 'Community Wall' still hangs on our walls here at the studio as a reminder of a community coming together to honor and remember.
MESSAGES FROM THE PERMIAN BASIN
We have since then, taken that wall and preserved it inside our building. We have it up and we are reminded daily when we walk by it, of that day in August 2019 that will forever affect our community.
The messages on the wall show the community's love and support for the families and those affected that day. The messages on that wall reflect the hope, love and fear that we were all feeling. When I look back at the messages on the wall, I get a sense of community, compassion, and love.
Three years later our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims and their families. As well as with all the officers, first responders and medical staff that reached out to help their community on that day.
We were and continue to be as the sign says.... #permianbasinstrong.
