The ambush-style attack on police officers in Baton Rouge on Sunday resulted in three dead law enforcement officers and three more seriously wounded.
I felt East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Sid Gautreaux captured a key point, something worth highlighting together: “This is not so much about gun control as it is about what’s in men’s hearts. Until we come together as a nation … to heal as a people, we will surely perish.”

As the late Alexandr Solzhenitsyn wrote: “The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either—but right through every human heart—and through all human hearts.”
With sober hearts, heavy hearts we all ought to be praying for a spiritual renewal in the hearts of individuals across this great nation.
