Visiting Franklin

Last Monday I made my second trip to Franklin.

It was more beautiful and more friendly than my first trip 14 years ago. Searching my roots, 14 years ago I found the Grave of Henry Jennings, (my great grandfather). Mr. J.L. Jennings grandfather was born in Simpson County in 1854. To Ellen at the old jail -- you are beautiful. To the farmer four mile southeast of Franklin, thanks for helping me find the Old Weems Cemetery. To the lady at the, Donut shop, thanks for a best donut. Last, but certainly not least, thank you, Ray Malinowski for what you are doing to restore Lewis Cemetery. On Sunday morning, May 22, I believe God was looking at Franklin and saying "I sent a Godwink." Simpson County you are blessed.

Border wall. Government shut-down. Proven facts. (2005-2015)Democrats voted three times,yes. Democrats funded forty billion dollars for border barrier. Pres.Trump just wants six billion. Why no now. Cheaper. Democrats Nancy Pelosi,Chuck Shumer,Barrack Obama,Joe Biden,Hillary Clinton all on videoed speeches saying illegal immigrants top problem for U.S. safety and economy. Stop illegals now (watch videos on computer). Pres.Trump trying to compromise. Build strong barrier instead of wall. Put DACA back in compromise. Democrats said no compromise. Seven thousand illegals at border now with another twelve thousand forming in South America. Mexico and Border Patrol says they're absolutely national treat. Gang members,terrorist,drug smugglers,children traffickers are in caravans. Please JESUS forgive U.S. for turning backs on you and help Pres.Trump get SATAN out of U.S.
