Buffalo Mayor Teri Lachermeier is urging residents in the area to acknowledge their feelings in the wake of last week’s deadly shooting at Allina Health Clinic. Lachermeier says the new “Buffalo Strong” initiative offers many different resources to help the community begin to heal…

“I’m overflowing with the love that’s being shown, let’s continue it to all the other people, let’s make sure everyone feels a part of our community, we can’t let this thing define us.”

Lachermeier is reminding residents in the area to take care of themselves, talk to each other and stay connected.
