Anyways, today marks the 3 year anniversary of the October 1st shooting. It was also on this day in 2017 that Rich Lightowler became Jedi Rich & Joy Lightowler became Jedi Joy.
The Jedi have an issue with using the term "strong" when it comes to this event. Boston Strong was a a response to a terroirst attack on their city. Vegas Strong implies there was a terrorist attack on our city. Was this an attack? Many people believe their was a conspiracy to hide the real motivation behind the attacker. But as far as we know, there was one man who was disgruntled at MGM, specifically Jim Murren. Ironically, Jim Murren quit MGM in February 2020 and is now milking a high position government job specially assigned to him by Steve Sisolak to rebuild the Las Vegas strip. (?).
Joy joined the U.S. Air Force when she was only 17 because she was so affected by the visuals she saw of the Twin Towers collapsing in her classroom. Her great-grandmother was Native American. Somehow, Jedi Joy has an intuition. She knew to grab her gear and suit up.
This photo was taken in the from our bedroom window in 2017. After October 1st, the Jedi moved to the Ft. Apache Caves for 3.5 months. That wasn't the plan. The plan was to "Leave Las Vegas". But the God, Satan, Buddha, Brahma, Shiva, Mohammed and oh yes, Jesus too said -- "We'd like you to stay in Vegas a little longer. We want to make you both Jedi". We complied.
Jedi Rich is no stranger to tragedy either. Jedi Rich lived on 23rd & 3rd in Gramercy Park, Manhattan on 9/11.
Jedi Joy & Jedi Rich lived walking distance from Mandalay Bay on October 1st, 2017. In fact, they could see the Mandalay Bay from their bedroom window.
On the outskirts of the county, they took a stop off-road to check out some caves. That lead to an oil-pan break. Which lead to overnight stay. Which led our car getting broke into and eventually stolen right under the LVMPD's noses. Check out the story here.
Life changes everything. Jedi are moving to Panama City 🇵🇦 on October 15, 2020. Follow our adventure on our new YouTube channel here. And be sure to follow Jedi Joy's Twitter for her latest thoughts here.
