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.

(1) Team Trump photos thread started on 10/8/17 that will bear no resemblance to the chronological order of events of the last 2 weeks.
(2) I begin with a pic that paints a thousand words. Crooked, Commie Carmen Yulin Cruz has to acknowledge the President while others smirk.
(3) Carmen Yulin Cruz is the failed Mayor of San Juan who won't lift a finger to help #MakePuertoRicoGreatAgain, while millions will.

1) Repeat after me: After every mass shooting I will kick and scream and freak the f out because that's what the @NRA doesn't want us to do.
2) And if you're guilty of saying "Nothing happened after #SandyHook so nothing ever will," you're not only wrong - you're the problem.
3) We didn't get here overnight - the @NRA had a 30 year head start. They've hijacked our nation and now it's on us to take it back.
