    So sad! My prayers for the victims and their families!

    May people learn from this tragedy and develop guidelines and better communication to prevent the terrible event from happening again.

    I'm a bit behind on the news, and I just found out about this...ugh. This hits close to home, as my boyfriend is a stagehand. There was another stage collapse not too long ago, at a Cheap Trick concert in Canada.

    My thoughts are with folks in IN tonight, both those who were working the show, and all the folks who rushed back in to help.

    Prayers to the families of those who lost loved ones and all those who rushed in to help. Bless their souls.
