Statement by Jim Murren, MGM Resorts Chairman & CEO

Jim Murren, MGM Resorts Chairman & CEO, released the following statement on the first anniversary of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting:

“One year ago, our community suffered an unforgettable act of terror. For MGM Resorts,  October 1 will forever be a day of remembrance, reflection and mourning as we struggle to comprehend the incomprehensible – the senseless act of evil that caused such a tragic loss of life, along with the suffering that we know continues.

“Today, we remember the 58 innocent victims and grieve along with survivors and countless loved ones. We share the sorrow of those who mourn and continue to search for meaning in events that lie beyond our understanding. We honor the courageous first responders and give thanks to the people who found remarkable strength and bravery amidst unspeakable violence and chaos.

“In the days since October 1, we have faced unimaginable realities. Through it all, I have been more grateful than I could ever express for the support of our loyal guests, partners, friends and employees.

“Today we stand in solidarity with the Las Vegas community and vow never to surrender to the worst among us, but to celebrate the best of humanity, which we have witnessed in far greater measure. Through this unity and determination, we solemnly pledge to make October 1st a day of healing and hope.”
