A woman who survived the Las Vegas massacre that left dozens dead last fall has been sworn in as a police officer after taking inspiration from the first responders who helped her. Lauren Card, 23, told the Associated Press she’d decided to become a police officer because of the sense of relief officers brought during the “madness and craziness” of the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival, when 58 people were gunned down. When she saw police running toward her that day, she said she “had a sense that, ’OK, the police are here. They are going to fix it. They are going to make it better.” “I want to be that person for someone else in that situation. When they’re going through something crappy or going through a hard time, I want them to see me and be like, ‘OK, she’s going to fix it,’” she said. Card will now be one of only three female police officers on the force in Springfield, Oregon.
