Sail On Anne Pressly

Post by pojo »

If you haven't heard Anne Pressly of KATV (Little Rock, AR) was brutally beaten in her home. Authorities believe she was injured during a robbery at her house Sunday Night. Her mother found her Monday morning only a 1/2 hour before she was supposed to go on air for Daybreak Arkansas at 5am.

She passed yesterday.

I spent several months at Little Rock AFB and recently flew with Meteorologist Todd Yakobian on a Hurricane Ike flight.

I live and work in Little Rock and I can tell you, it's been a rough time.
As many of you heard, Bill Gwatney, a local businessman, was killed by a disturbed person earlier this year, and then Anne was attacked and killed.
Just last night there was a school shooting at the UCA campus just outside Little Rock.:cry: I had literally stop watching tv last night. Too much bad news.
Our city is stunned. Our state is stunned.
The outpouring of prayers for Anne from around the world has been incredible to watch. I didn't know her personally, though I work in broadcasting, I know many who did, and they are so sad and angry.
We are all hoping that they catch this person or persons and that they are brought to justice. I thank you all for your continued prayers and phinpower for Anne's family, and our community.

It's times like these that I wish more people were Parrotheads.
The world would be a better and more peaceful place.
