You have sent notes, emails, tweets and Facebook posts of support and encouragement for our police and DART employees since that awful night of July 7. You have covered squad cars set up as memorials with tributes, flowers and, most of all, love for the people who seek to serve you as we work together to keep our community moving. You have given generously to support the families of the officers who were killed or wounded.
We are not healed, but are healing. We are getting better daily. In the meantime, we’ll keep working to keep our community growing. There are many things to be excited about in the coming months. We will open new streetcar and rail extensions this summer and we will bring out new buses in the fall. We will continue working with you to plan the future. We have much to do.
At the same time, we need to pause and remember the people of Baton Rouge. Their community is where ours was just days ago. No community, anywhere, ever, should share the experience we’ve endured. It breaks our hearts.
Please join us in sending good wishes and prayers to that community and the law enforcement agencies that keep them safe.
Most of all, thank you for your continued support of all of DART.
