In the lengthy post that began with the words, "A note to Dayton, El Paso and Gilroy," Gaga expressed her condolences to the victims and those they left behind to grieve.

Gaga described hope as faith “in each other and ourselves.” She announced that she is partnering with Born This Way Foundation to build 14 classrooms for Dayton, Ohio, 125 for El Paso, Texas, and 25 in Gilroy, California.
