In the aftermath of horrific events in Las Vegas on Sunday, October 1, voices across North America have once again called for gun safety.

Talk show hosts from Trevor Noah to Jimmy Kimmel have all made emotional appeals for stricter firearm laws in the United States.

However, the outcry has not been limited to famous television personalities. In fact, one voice from Victoria has begun to spread on social media.

Brie Jacobsen was among the crowds in Las Vegas on the night of the attack and has written an open letter advocating against gun violence.

“My soul aches”

Jacobsen made a Facebook post on Tuesday that has since garnered over 150 reactions and over a dozen shares.

“I will not hide from the terrors that occurred in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 1st,” she wrote on Facebook. “I have so many things to say along with so many feelings I’m struggling to feel. My body hurts. My soul aches. I will never erase the images that have seeped into my mind.”

“This incident will have consequences. Please let the consequences advocate against gun violence,” Jacobsen continued.

The full letter spans three pages, which can be read below:
