    “Her name is on the Wall of Tolerance at the Southern Poverty Law Center, ”

    Just for the record, not one of the SPLC’s top executives is a minority. How tolerant is that?

    In fact, according to the Montgomery Advertiser, the Progressive and Harper’s magazine, the SPLC has NEVER hired a person of color to a highly paid position of authority in its entire 40 year history.

    And if that isn’t hypocritical enough, keep in mind that the SPLC is located LITERALLY in the back yard of Dr. King’s own Dexter Avenue Baptist Church.

    Some things never change in Montgomery.

    Great interview! I have Franki’s Ripples on the Surface; will now go to Barnes and Noble to order Deception Past and Dragonfly Dreams; never ordered an eBook. Looking forward to reading reincarnation stories by my second cousin who has always been creative in many ways.

    I love the idea behind Ripples on the Surface. Donating to help women in Uganda rebuild their lives after contacting HIV/AIDS is a very generous thing to do. Riencarnation stories are always interesting.

    I have read Franki’s Dragonfly Dreams. My grandmother was a believer in reincarnation and so the subject naturally caught my interest. She did a great job tying all the lives – past and present- together. I am in hopes in getting to Deception Past but my reading list is long as member of the Independent Author Network where we do our best to support each other.

    Thank you everyone. I’ve let Franki know you’ve stopped by. 🙂

    Just for the record, regarding “rkeefe57”, the Southern Poverty Law Center is a nonprofit organization which has provided legal representation for victims of hate crimes unable to afford representation. I have supported it since it began. Morris Dees has done amazing work and is an American hero. I’m curious what “highly paid position” “rkeefe57” expects to find in this nonprofit organization which exists by donations.

    Franki writes from her heart. We can all learn from that. It brings a deeper dimension and feeling to the writing.
