A survivor of the Las Vegas shooting received a special surprise from her students. The event was caught on camera by the company dude. be nice.

During the Route 91 Harvest Festival outside Las Vegas in 2017, Autumn Bignami was one of the several hundred people injured when a gunman opened fire. The Las Vegas shooting remains the deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual in the United States. Bignami was hit three times, with major injuries in her jaw and back. She underwent ten surgeries to try and repair all the damage.

Autumn Bignami is also a California teacher, who is beloved by her students and her community and very involved in their lives. So they wanted to find a way to show the educator how appreciated she is.

It's the kind of video you just have to see.

Las Vegas Shooting Survivor's Sweet Surprise

Her students talk in the video about how she touched their lives. Shortly after the initial incident, the student body put together a video letting Bignami know how much she was missed. As the video goes on, they describe the individual ways Bignami has supported each student.

The group worked in tandem with Bignami's family, a local Red Robin, and a media company called dude. be nice (DBN). DBN describes its mission as creating a more conscious culture with ethically-made products. Bignami was an early supporter of the brand.

The whole event was caught on camera and is nothing short of beautiful.

Is someone cutting onions?

Despite her injuries, Bignami has kept a positive attitude,

"There's one of two ways to go with this. You do it, and you're stronger because of it. Or you don't do it. So, for me the not doing it isn't really an option."

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
