The terrible events of last week have shaken Southwest Louisiana but prove once again that resilience and compassion are the primary hallmarks of our community.
Thousands rallied around law enforcement and the family of slain trooper Steven Vincent, both in prayer and with financial assistance. We can't begin to imagine the pain Trooper Vincent's wife and son are enduring. While the rest of us get on with our lives, they face the future without a husband and father whose dedication to serving others cost him his life. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
Trooper Vincent's legacy lives on not only in how he lived, but in death as an organ donor. Please honor his memory by becoming an organ donor yourself.
Also if you are able, please consider attending the funeral service of Mr. Blake Brewer, a good man who gave his own life in the process of trying to help someone completely undeserving of it. It will be held this Saturday at 10 am at Lakeside Funeral Home in Lake Charles.
We can't eliminate bad from this world, but we can ensure that by our actions good will always triumph in our Better Southwest Louisiana.
