On Oct. 1, 2017, what has been said to be the deadliest mass shooting in America occurred at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. The shooting left 58 people dead and over 500 others injured. Fifty-eight people died at an event they attended with family and friends to have a good night. This is not the first time something like this has happened in America, and if changes aren’t made, it will not be the last.

After Swift donated $250,000 to Ke$ha, Lovato was still unsatisfied: “Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I’ll be impressed,” she tweeted.
Starbucks has come under fire recently for its lack of Christmas-themed images on its annual holiday cups. Instead of Starbucks’ usual red and green cups adorned with various images that represent Christmas and the holiday season, this year there were only red cups with the coffee company’s logo.
