Doug Beard: Continue prayer vigils for the people of Brussels

To the people of Adair County:

While Tuesday, March 22nd, was a historic day in Adair County, the events of the election were overshadowed by the tragedy in Brussels, Belgium which claimed the lives of so many innocent people and changed forever the lives of many more individuals.

I would call on all of our citizens to continue prayer vigils and focus our thoughts and attention on the danger which our world faces as radical Islam continues to spread its message of terror throughout the globe.

It's a very unsettling time and let's pray that our leaders and our intelligence community persevere in their efforts to bring these terrorists to justice. It's going to be a long battle.

As a person who has traveled extensively throughout all of these major airports and cities in my professional career, I can't help but be reminded that life is precious and can be forever changed in the blink of an eye.

God Bless our friends and allies around the world, and God Bless the United States.

-Doug Beard
