Baltimore Tonight

Thank you all so very much for the kind messages and texts about my well being and safety. I am both well and safe. Remember I am out there because it is what I do and where I want to be. It is heart breaking to watch my city, my home, burn. I went from photographing Freddie Gray’s family and their attorney speak about the violence and how they did not support it. I heard the Crips and the Bloods call for peace in the community. Upon leaving I went one block down the street to a standoff where cars were set on fire and Molotov cocktails were being thrown at police.

The truth is, this city is made up of two types of people: those who want to see peace, a brighter future for their kids and then there are those who have no future and no regard for anything but their own emotion. Both are parallel. The media shows you destruction, and yes it is happening, but that is not the biggest part of the picture.

Don’t forget: This started because people want answers from police and it won’t end until they get them – peaceful or not.
