    Sorry but I can’t make it. I’m in Tallahassee and only come up the first of each month. Maybe we can schedule something around that time because I would really like to be there. Also maybe we can get together and form a group and go to Jackson and make our voices heard. Hope you have a wonderful turnout. We have to take a stand because our politicians are scared. Please keep me informed. God Bless Yal!!!!
