It’s a hashtag that defined the city in April, and it’s trending once again.
And after Sunday night’s shooting on The Danforth that has killed two so far, the city is uniting once again, sharing condolence messages and love.
From other city police forces, to politicians and residents, social media flooded with messages about our city.
