I plan on heading into the bank this morning and asking about one of those small 14 million dollar loans Donald is talking about. Parents are tripping on this pocket change, acting like they ain't got it.
Also, I've come to the conclusion that "They" (DJ Khalid Voice)...don't want us to be great...because THEY ain't calling Sean Hannity. So what we gonna do? We gonna be great again.

Good morning Pastor. Your George Washington quote is so relevant this morning! If I may add to your insightful post, as you are keenly aware, each of us is shaped by our experiences in America.
