July 27, 1996

On this day in history….  The Centennial Olympic Park bombing at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta kills one and injures 111.

Let us take a moment to remember this tragic event.

As we ramp up for the Summer Games in Rio, there once again are several concerns.  One of the most severe to me that is being underrated is the security concerns.  Rio is a city with increasing crime.  We should take a hint from the several police officers who are warning us with signs and protests at the nearby airport.  I pray for the safety of all of the athletes, families, friends, and workers that are attending these games.
