Feeling Really Sad Tonight

Monday, April 27, 2015

This evening I am feeling very sad and disappointed with the citizens of Baltimore. I lived in Baltimore during the riots of 1968 which destroyed the city. Now the thugs are out again destroying the city I grew up in. These thugs are not only looting and destroying businesses but they are burning down buildings (a senior retirement building is currently burning) and harming the police. The situation is really bad and hopefully soon cooler heads will prevail. I pray for the city I love that grew from the 1968 destruction and hope that this will end soon!

    I didn't grow up in Baltimore but I was living there and going to school (in east Baltimore!) during the riots in 1968. It was pretty scary at the time. But the saddest thing of all is that the people who were doing the rioting, killing and destruction did not understand that in the long run, they were not only hurting others, but hurting themselves above all. It is so sad to see a repeat performance in 2015.

    Prayers for your community. What is happening is NOT the justice some are trying to claim they deserve.

    JOEB52 - you are so right - the citizens need to take back the city from the thugs. Today they were out in force cleaning up the mess the thugs made!

    yes you are correct i also lived in Baltimore city for many years, and sad about the few that are putting us on the national news. This is not how anybody should want change. Hope people go to sleep wake up and think about what is going on. They want change take the city back from the thugs and change the city back to something people would love to see the history and beauty that is there.

    Yes, this is a very sad situation. I hear there is a lot of looting going on and that the schools are closed tomorrow. I feel for you because it brings back so many unhappy memories...

    It's hard to understand how people can act out like this and feel justified in their actions. The damage goes so much deeper than the destruction ... So sorry you are reliving what was horrible the first time. :(
