Community Comes Together For Mickey – Not Necessarily The News
In this edition of "Not Necessarily The News," Tootie visited the headquarters of the search for Mickey Shunick and talks about the amazing efforts by family, friends, police and the community in trying to bring her back.
"Hey! I’m Tootie Landry and this is what I found out today. I’m really at a loss right now to find humor in my everyday life. My sarcastic attitude has taken a backseat to the Mickey Shunick investigation. As evident of the command center at Blackham Coliseum or the hundreds of volunteers that search tirelessly each day for her, our community is standing hand-in-hand to get one “of our own” back.
Walking around the Coliseum, I was in awe! From the thousands of bottles of water donated, to bug spray, and flashlights this operation was born from a community with compassion.
As soon as a request for an item gets on the list, it comes in that day! We are powerful together! Almost 3 million people have now seen Mickey’s Facebook page.
This compassion is how we need to act when things go wrong. Whether it’s someone getting bullied, beaten, raped, or someone else goes missing. When speaking with a volunteer named Josh he stated, “What makes us cry today is the generous donations and love from this community.”
And finally, whoever is out there that is responsible for Mickey’s disappearance; you can’t win because our love in this community is way more powerful than you! And I’m Tootie Landry and this is “Not Necessarily the News.”
