Today’s Connecting the Dots #CTD- Poverty

Speaking on the Baltimore riots, President Obama expresses the need to make fighting poverty a priority. The president’s call to help the poor was not to side with the rioters but an attempt to address the root cause of the issue. Because of the excessive media coverage of the chaos, the thousands of peaceful protesters are not getting the attention deserved. The violent acts during the Baltimore protests are counterproductive and takes away from the good that this protest is trying to seek. We need to remember to build our communities up instead of tearing it down. #BaltimoreRiots #BaltimoreUprising #PeaceInBaltimore
