“We’re still recovering from the events that took place on 1October. We’re still grieving for the family members who are no longer with us. And we’re still supporting the survivors whose lives will never be the same. Today—in remembrance of that awful night one year ago—let’s give thanks for the bravery and dedication of our first responders. Let’s give thanks to the community of Las Vegas. Their tremendous outpouring of generosity has shown the world what it means to be Vegas Strong. Let’s continue to do everything we can to support those who are still struggling to recover from the emotional and physical wounds they sustained on October 1st. May God Bless the city of Las Vegas, the State of Nevada, and everyone affected by this tragedy.”
