Puerto Rico’s Nightmare Recovery:

“I don’t want to live here anymore.”

Eyleen Gonzalez, all of 18 years of age, uttered that phrase without hesitating.
Gonzalez’s house in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico, was destroyed by Hurricane Maria nearly two weeks ago.
Since then, everyone in her hometown has lived without electricity. Only a quarter of its 80,000 residents have running water. About half of gas stations in town are open, with long queues stretching blocks. Most supermarkets are open but rationing food.

Jason Aldean: Vegas Shooting Put One Of Country’s Biggest Stars At A Scene Of Horror:

Las Vegas is where Jason Aldean celebrated one of the high points of his hugely successful career.

He won the Academy of Country Music’s entertainer of the year award there in April for the second year in a row.
“You guys don’t know how much I love getting up and doing what I do every day,” he said during his acceptance speech.
Aldean was performing at the Route 91 Harvest music festival near the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas on Sunday night when gunfire broke out.
A video posted on social media showed Aldean and his band fleeing the stage mid-song as bullets flew.
At least 59 people were killed and more than 520 were injured, authorities said.
The country star took to Instagram to say the incident was “beyond horrific.”
“I still dont know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe,” Aldean wrote. “My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken #stopthehate.”

Tragedies To Test Trump As Nation’s Comforter:

President Donald Trump begins two days of consolation on Tuesday, traveling to storm-battered Puerto Rico before making his way to Las Vegas to view a different type of wreckage at the site of the deadliest shooting in modern US history.

It’s the most concentrated stretch of presidential comforting to occur during Trump’s tenure, which has been marked more by stoking of divisions than displays of empathy. Nevertheless, Trump on Monday hewed to presidential precedent, striking a unifying sentiment during a solemn address at the White House.
“Our unity cannot be shattered by evil, our bonds cannot be broken by violence,” Trump said. “And though we feel such great anger at the senseless murder of our fellow citizens, it is our love that defines us today — and always will, forever.”
