As a result of the events which have occurred in Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights and Dallas, Mayor Tommy Eschete has requested that we take some time today to pray for the individuals and families which have been devastated by these tragedies.
On behalf of the City Council and our entire City of Thibodaux family, I wish to extend my condolences and sympathies to the families who have lost a loved one, especially considering the manner in which they lost their lives.
Although many have quickly jumped to judgment in all of these instances, I humbly ask that each of us take the opportunity to realize that we need to come together as a nation and community to address the real issues that may have triggered the actions which has caused so much dismay.
Even though many people want to villainize our brothers and sisters in law enforcement, we need to realize that without them we are a country of anarchy and unrest. Please take a minute to tell our law enforcement officers thank you for their service and pray for their safety in these trying times.
