Thank God for law enforcement, firefighters, and first responders who raced to the scene of the Vegas mass murder.

And, thank God for people who responded to the carnage unfolding around them.

Like Sonny Melton, a 29 year-old nurse from Tennessee who was one of the first victims. The moment he heard shots, Sonny grabbed his wife and started to push her away from the incoming rounds of hell fire.

“GO!!” he shouted over and over at Heather. She ran as hard as she could…until she felt him crumple to the ground – shot in the back.

Sonny died where he fell.

Kurt Fowler is a firefighter from Arizona who was there to enjoy the show with his wife, Trina.

As the shots rang out, the father-of-three forced Trina to the ground and laid on top of her.

Paddock’s payload from the sky ripped Kurt’s leg apart.

Mark McCurdy is a fire captain from Los Angeles. In the mayhem, Mark saw his sister-in-law get shot. He immediately grabbed her and ran to their room at Mandalay Bay Hotel. He called for help so she could be taken to the hospital, then he returned to the scene to e-vac more victims.

Mike Brown picked up a friend and noticed he was bleeding. The friend, a firefighter named Steve Keys said, “Yeah, I got shot,” and pulled up his shirt to show the chest wound he received while performing CPR on a woman at the site.

29 year-old Marine Taylor Winston dodged gunfire to tear down the fence so concert-goers could escape.

Then there are thousands who lined up to give blood, and the tens of thousands who have given millions on the Las Vegas Go Fund Me page.

These brave heroes all stood up in the face of death and destruction.

May God bless everyone affected by this horror.
