When it was all set and done, 10 lives were taken prematurely, 3 more had a number of serious injuries, and a community was left scarred.

Now, on the 6-month anniversary of this tragic attack, people all over Buffalo and New York State are gathering to honor the lives of everyone who was impacted by this mass shooting.

It's indeed a solemn day for all of us, and I just acknowledge that this is the six-month anniversary, reflection. Now people reflect on what happened to our neighbors on that bright, sunny day on a Saturday that is forever steered in our hearts on May 14th.
