A New Day

This is a picture of the image last night from Baltimore City. At least 15 structures, not to mention over 100 vehicles, were burned to the ground due to rioters.

But today there is a much different picture of the city.

These new images are of the city I love; the city that comes together to help each other and take care of each other.

Some of you may have seen this floating around Facebook today and the news.  In my opinion, more parents should have done this.  I know my mother would have.

I’ll leave you with this.

What can I say? My little shipper heart hated how SVM and TB treated Eric, so I have made it my mission to create worlds where the Viking always gets the girl. :-)

    What a massive difference 12 hours can make. So glad the police and soldiers are keeping you all safe today. It’s wonderful to see people volunteering and donating drinks, what a wondeful testament to your city. My nephew is a police sergeant in England; these pictures would astound him – that just wouldn’t happen here. They are more likely to have drinks thrown at them.

    I’d like to buy that woman dinner too. I whole heartedly agree with the sentiments of those posters too. It is an unfortunate fact that minorities will use a tragic event to forward their own agendas or use it as an excuse for violence. I wonder how many people rioting actually knew what started the trouble in the first place?

    Glad you are still safe and hope there is no more trouble xxx

    Such a huge difference from yesterday! It’s always a beautiful sight when the community gets together to get things back to rights. I agree with you more parents should do what that mom did.

    Real glad things seem to be calming down! Just a little different perspective on that mother’s actions:
