My home State of Louisiana has suffered a great tragedy with all the recent flooding. So many people’s lives have been disrupted and the recovery is just beginning. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected. I’m calling on everyone to pull together and help out with the relief efforts that are underway. There are so many ways to support — from volunteering to donating to the many great organizations such as the Baton Rouge Area Foundation or the Second Harvest Foodbank. The road to recovery will be long but know Louisiana that we will be there for you.
