MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:
When three people were shot at a local bowling alley late last month, the folks who live near and play at the bowling alley didn't hide in fear and they didn't abandon the business.
Instead they held a rally for the bowling alley.
Sandi Rogers organized the rally to support Billy Hardwick's All Star Lanes on South White Station Road.
She wanted to remind everyone Billy Hardwick's is a safe place for family fun and the only thing we can do is stand up to the violence by supporting each other.
Rogers wanted to turn a negative into a positive and invited folks out for the rally through Facebook.
It just so happened the suspect in this case was arrested the same day as the rally.
Sandi Rogers--you are setting a great example for all of us. Standing up for our community in the face of violence makes this A Better Mid-South.
