A Feeling of Belonging
In my last post, I gave a few preliminary thoughts on putting down roots. Calling a place home. With the recent events in Baton Rouge — the shootings and floods — it’s been very evident that community is the cornerstone of “home-ness.” Anyone not willing to call Baton Rouge home would have skedaddled weeks ago. They would have had to settle into a new house, a new job and a new routine and, while they may have temporarily escaped tragedy, they would have missed out on something special.
