At age 12, wrote a 168 page paper on the War Between The States encouraged by my mentor from church, Ralph McGill. *** McGill was the Publisher of The Atlanta Constitution, and instructed me at age 10 to read and love "tHis Constitution FOR the United States of America" because as a young reporter, McGill witnessed the Austrians vote away their written Constitution for the promises of the government, the Nazi government! I ask how far are we in America from voting away our God given Constitution? ***
Ralph McGill received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a.d. 1964, and the Pulitzer Prize in a.d. 1959. I was blessed by McGill's mentorship for he was called: "The Conscience of the South".
