1/5 Two years ago, our community experienced a tragedy unlike any we have faced before. #1October, 2017, is a day that no Nevadan will forget. The fear, the trauma, the grief that engulfed our city can’t be measured.
2/5 Since that day, I have seen our city come together in a way that only a strong community can in supporting the victims and their families. Our unity made it clear that ‘Vegas Strong’ is not a catchphrase, it’s a part of our identity.
3/5 No one embodies that identity more than our first responders on the scene minutes after the shooting, along with the nurses, doctors, and hospital staff working day and night to care for the countless victims injured that night.
