We are saddened by the tragic death of Alton Sterling. We are asking all Louisiana citizens to join together in prayer for the Sterling Family and for justice and peace in our communities. The people of Louisiana have a history of uniting in difficult times. We trust that the people of Louisiana will rise to the occasion yet again.
