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."

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
