The trooper put in charge of tamping swirling racial tensions in this St Louis suburb vowed Sunday to stay “as long as it takes,” after violence flared anew.

Hope everyone is having a very good, beatifull, awesome and a happy, happy, happy day for each and every single person on the earth. Now i do not know about you, but i am having a good day so far. But my message is to try to be happy about life, even though something might cause you to be down, sad, or mad. God never said life is easy and will be a challenge.
