Baton Rouge Hurting

Having grown up in Baton Rouge, the events of the last several weeks have been difficult to take. My experiences in Baton Rouge for most of my life have been overall quite positive. I don't ever recall things being that bad but of course I grew up in a time where there was no social media and instant video cameras in everyone's pocket with their cell phones. I know that the people of Baton Rouge are good people and the attention the city has gained has certainly not been what the city leaders have desired. From the unfortunate death of Anton Sterling at the hands of police officers during a struggle to the brazen military style murder of three fine police officers on Airline Highway this past Sunday morning, these have not been the best of times in Baton Rouge. I hope that if you stop by to read this post that you must realize that Baton Rouge is not a bad place. Like all cities across America it has problems but by and large it is not a bad city. This post is to ask all to pray for peace for Baton Rouge and the rest of our great country. Let's not let the bad actions of a few people turn everyone against each other with hatred. May God bless the city of Baton Rouge and may God bless the United States of America.
