The UNLV Rebels hosted their first football game since the deadliest U.S. massacre in U.S. history in Las Vegas last weekend. The Rebels, along with those around the area, are attempting to help those affected by the tragedy.

Prior to their game at Sam Body Stadium, the team held a pre-game ceremony with a moment of silence, along with other festivities, including first-responders releasing white balloons into the air.

Not even a week ago, Steven Paddock, 64-years-old, decided to take aim on the Route 91 Harvest Festival by shooting out of his 32nd floor room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip on Oct. 1. At the festival, 58 people were killed and more than 500 were injured as they attempted to escape the bullets from his weapons.

According to the law enforcement authorities, the shooting lasted about 15 minutes in total. Yet, they continue to struggle to find a motive, as to why the millionaire decided to take the evil path he did when Jason Aldean was on stage as the final performer of the music festival.

The ‘Vegas Strong’ movement is an attempt for the world to unify with the Las Vegas community, as they attempt to recover from the Oct. 1 incident.

“The Entire Mountain West family offers our thoughts, prayers, love and support to our family members and friends in the Las Vegas and UNLV communities, and to all those who have been impacted by this unimaginable tragedy,” the Mountain West Conference said in a statement on Monday, Oct. 2. “We hope you draw strength in knowing we stand with you in this most difficult hour.”
