YOUR TURN: BR Violent Tragedies


This week’s Your Turn segment goes to Poppy Rodney. Rodney emailed us because he is concerned about the recent violent tragedies that have impacted Baton Rouge. He says it’s up to all of us to turn things around. In his words:

I know hate is such an ugly word, but I hate what I'm seeing happening in Baton Rouge. It is up to us, the common folks, to make a stand and show the world that what is going on right now is not us. We are good people with a friendly community where people say good morning, hold the door open for the person behind you, or stop and help if we see a stranger in a bind. So let's make a difference, put our gray glasses on where everyone is the same color, and get busy. If each one of us makes it a point to do a good deed every day, it's going to make you feel so good inside, you will want to do it again.

That’s Poppy Rodney’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
