Rioting in Baltimore

Hidey Hoo and I hope all are having a Great Day thus Far?! 
I know I am even though we are in the midst of rioting and looting in Maryland, the Baltimore area precisely.  If you'd like to read more, check out the article in the USA Today Online newspaper
A snippet of the USA Today article here 
"The governor and mayor promised increased security. The baseball team canceled Tuesday's game and announced it will play Wednesday in an empty stadium. And President Obama promised a thorough investigation into the death in police custody of Freddie Gray.
    Schools were closed, the National Guard was on the streets and wreckage was everywhere. Across from a burned and looted CVS, tensions began to rise again Tuesday afternoon.
     Several people threw water bottles at police officers who stood in riot gear. At times protesters argued among themselves, some pleading for a peaceful event and others arguing that the police officers needed to feel the pain they have inflicted on the community."
What a day makes when it comes to the chaos of yesterday to the beautiful weather of today. The sun is shining as a cool breeze blows in the wind. A great day to be outdoors enjoying nature. I just pray that the protests don't start up tonight and cause more damages to the City of Baltimore!! Pray for Baltimore!! 
As for me, I decided to take the day off cause of all the chaos in the city and to watch and read the news regarding this protest happening in Baltimore. I'm just glad I didn't hear of anyone getting killed only minor injuries that required quick stays in the hospital. 
Well, I gotta go and take care of some more business. Have a Blessed Day!!
