Knowing I was just employed as a Security guard @ borderline less than 2 months ago and WOULD have been on duty tonight. I can’t hold my tears back, I pray my friends and former coworkers are alive and safe. Prayers #Borderline

For those of you who are not familiar with Thousand Oaks, this is a place that is routinely considered the safest city in the entire country. This is the absolute last place anyone thought this would ever happen. If it can happen here, it can happen anywhere. #Borderline

Once again, we begin a day with heavy hearts for the innocent victims slain in an act of evil, this time in California, and for Ventura County Sgt. Ron Helus, the hero who ran into the gunfire, gave his life to save others. No greater love. Our prayers are with them. #Borderline

This mother recounting her son escaping the #Borderline mass shooting has me crying. He hid in a gas station & vomited from fear. 11 dead. Among them a veteran cop & likely students. Less than 2 weeks after the Pittsburgh Massacre. This is terrorism. We are at war with our own.

Some survivors of the Route 91 mass shooting that took place in Vegas were at #Borderline tonight…making this the second mass shooting that they have been in. I have no words.

#Borderline is the 304th mass shooting in America this year.
It’s the 312th day of the year. That’s almost one per day.

Kids in 2018 wake up almost weekly to a mass shooting. In 1988, I woke up to wondering if that day would be the day I stepped in quicksand. Their fears >>>>>>>>> #Borderline

Borderline, almost 10 years ago. What a different world it was then. How different it was two years ago. How different it was….a day ago. https://t.co/Kkh4taabLu
