I frequent a forum called Acts, mostly church stuff some politics and a lot of ‘discussion’ on faith and beliefs. Dr. Marty Baker is a contributor there. It made the news the other day that he was going to introduce Donald Trump at a Rally.(I also put this on FB, U mite have read it)
Lots of folks knowing Marty from the forum were surprised and had some negative stuff to say and some were positive. After a few days Marty came back with his explanation, along with a story. He said he kept hearing very negative comments about Donald, and said that was not the Trump he remembered back in Georgia. He related this:
In 1986 L.D. and Annabelle Hill had had a few bad years on their farm and were losing it. The farm had been in their family in Burke County, Georgia for over a hundred years. The night before the Bank Auction, L.D. overtaken with grief, went into the bedroom and took his life. Of course the bank postponed the auction.
Word spread thru the county, state and even up to NY where a man named Donald Trump heard about it. He immediately started the ball rolling and bought the farm. Below is the picture of a young Donald burning the mortgage and he gave the farm back to Annabelle.
Now I have not been a Trump supporter I have appreciated some of his open statements. The one I didn’t like was his nasty about McCain’s POW time, he was wrong to bring that up.
But this story told by Marty before he introduced Mr. Trump at a Rally in SC, is important, me thinks. I am a sucker for a tear jerker, and this did bring a tear.
Above is Marty and his wife, the guys on the Forum did give him a tough time about his choice of coat and bowtie.
But I liked the story, I thought you might appreciate it also. It is good to know some politicians have a heart.
