Moments from departing the Walmart Hilton this morning a voice from behind, where are you headed? James answered with a short version of the story, The self immolation at a concentration camp destroying children is delayed, 1st attempting To resurrect a soul here or there in the 48 States. The question was from a middle age man with his female partner . He recoiled a little bit reflects of Lee. As with almost all that approached the vehicle were expecting an entertaining story. But he was certainly not impolite. His female partner Step forward asking politely if she could contribute $10 to the work. She brought up the student strike led by Greta happening today worldwide, and expressed her optimism.
