October 03, 2017
Our hearts go out to all those affected by the horrendous shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada. Words fail us.

Last night, Walt Disney Co. Chairman and CEO Bob Iger tweeted, "A senseless, horrific, act, and a terrible loss for so many. We mourn a wonderful member of the Disney family: Carrie Barnette. Tragic." Barnette was a 10-year member of the culinary team at Disney California Adventure. Another cast member, Jessica Milam, was also seriously injured in the shooting.

Note that to honor the victims of this tragedy all U.S. flags on Disney property will be flown at half-staff through sunset on Oct. 6 in accordance with a presidential proclamation.
