2005 was a time when the internet was young. The people on there were real and we all learned so much about each other. 2016 internet is filled with fake, hacking, advertisement hungry, capitalism, but it is still possible to find compassion and to get stories told.
Once again, Louisiana is under water. I prayed many a night for my son to develop a love for Louisiana as I did and my prayers were answered. In the summer of 2014, I packed him up and drove him to Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he would attend Louisiana State University ( LSU ). I fell in love with 'the BR' or as he called it 'Da Boot'. Much different then New Orleans, BR is a sleepy, gorgeous, delicious, juicy, green, delectable town. I fell in love with Purple and Gold, Mike the Tiger, Louie's, ACME's, BOTH Walmarts, downtown BR, BLINK, TJ Ribs and so much more! My heart breaks for them, and so, as I did before, I am devoting this blog to bring BR, Gonzales, Donaldson, all of Livingston Parish, Lutcher and anywhere that needs attention, help, love and support.
Here are some of my favorite Baton Rouge moments:
