Horrific news out of Baton Rouge this morning: 3 police officers are dead and more are in critical condition after being shot in the street by an unknown gunman.
Gregg and I just heard about this latest tragedy over our breakfast toast and coffee. What awful news to wake up to.
Oddly enough, we were watching Sky News from the U.K. when the story broke, and when we went online for more info, the U.S. news sites hadn't posted anything about it yet.
Gun violence and mass shootings are an every day occurrence here, but racial tensions are reaching a boiling point and making everything so much worse. Violence is never the answer to injustice. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind, as the old saying goes.
Just once, I wish we could go a whole week without news of more bloodshed and hate here in America. Where will all this end? I don't want to live in this kind of place where violence and racism and hate are every day news and innocent people shot dead isn't even surprising anymore. What has happened to us?
