Save the Children

My Unborn Son
My Only Son
The Untold Story

Iím about to tell a story that very very few know. Oh, maybe they heard rumors 36 Years Ago this month but I promise you, they donít know the Truth. God put this on my Heart to Tell a while back, I told Him No. He applied more pressure to my heart and emotions until I have No Choice. But you do. Until your time is up on this earth, you always have choices. Make the Right Ones. This story is about the Best Choice I Ever Made in my Life. For Life. God has made it my mission to tell it hoping it will influence others into making the right choice also. In a world full of bitterness and hate, killing the innocent, unborn children, we need to stand and fight, shout our stories in Support of Life. This is My Story:

June/July, 1983. Brings back Good Memories doesnít it? I was 18 years old, soon to be 19. My Girlfriend was 17, and Pregnant. I was a manager of a Country Grocery Store In Gillsburg Mississippi. Just a few miles west of where the Band, Lynard Skynard, crashed their plane many years ago. When I found out she was pregnant, I was also dating another young woman that was older than me and taught Sunday School in Gillsburg and special Ed Kids in Louisiana. I had a Choice to make and I made it. She told me her mom wanted her to have an abortion and she had no choice. She would then go to college and have a better life than having a baby at a young age. I went and met with her mom and dad and put options on the table. I would keep the baby and raise him while she stayed with her folks and went to college and afterwards if we loved one another we would be married. Or they raise the baby. No deal. I went to the Catholic Priest where they went to church and told him what was going on and he went and talked with them, no deal. They sent her to New Orleans to have the abortion done. She stayed with her Aunt and Uncle and I found out where she was. Her Aunt had to take her cousin to speech class at 10am on the day she was to have the abortion that afternoon. I had my Pontiac Grand Prix SJ packed up and rolling into New Orleans. I had told No One my plans. I had a few thousand bucks saved up and all my guns, tent, sleeping bags and clothes in the car. Plan? Go to Sin City, Las Vegas and see if we could get married to save our child. Pulled up to her Aunt and Uncles house at 10:20 am and Dropped the Hammer after she got in the car. Didnít stop until we were Well into New Mexico. Thatís right, over 24 hours straight with no sleep. All the way out of Louisiana and across the whole State of Texas. We were running Scared. Slept that next day and started driving at night. Less chance of the car being identified. Las Vegas said No, both had to be 18 or have parents consent. We drifted on, not knowing what to do. All the way up to Spokane Washington, at the Canadian Border and back down to Missoula Montana. Stayed there a week then drifted some more. We saw heat waves in Vegas and Frost In Idaho. Went from 117 in the Desert to 30 in the Mountains. Yellowstone and Glacial National Parkís. Jackson Hole Wyoming. We saw some things, some beautiful things and despite how scared and lost we were not knowing what to do, we soaked it all in. Gods Beauty. Came down to Denver Colorado then cut out for Memphis Tennessee. My pops has a sister that lives there. We had been gone a Month with no contact to either of our families. Money was running lower than I liked and I finally had to admit, we needed help. We called my Pops from his sisters and found out a lot. Her parents had the law and private investigators all over my parents area hunting us. Her moms side of the family was knocking on kin folks doors trying to find us. I would be in deep trouble if caught even though they claimed they just wanted their daughter home and would let her have the baby. I didnít take the bait. Pops said he found out that Florida had a Law that if a girl is pregnant you tell your story to a Judge and they decide if you can get married or not. Next morning we were in the wind to Pensacola Florida. Got her blood test, got results, told story, got married and came home. Her daddy came around but her mother didnít. Very Bitter, until the baby was born. I always loved to read western books and there was this one book they ended up making a movie about many many years ago. The book and the movie were named, ď Call Me ShaneĒ. I had the name of my Son picked out Years before I ever met this girl that was to be his mother. I was in the Delivery Room waiting his arrival. It got Show Time and things were happening. Nurse came flying around the table and tripped over my wifeís drip stand. It smashed to the floor, jerking the needle back in her hand and the Blood started flowing up the line. Thatís the last thing I remember. They say I smacked the floor and bounced a couple of times. They drug me out into the hall and shut the door and delivered our Baby Boy. When I came to, my Mother In Law was standing there and because I had a mask on my face she thought I was a Doctor taking a break. We all let go of our differences the day my son was born. Spent many good years as part of the family but I had Demons running through my blood that would not let me be happy. Despite having a Historic Show Place Of a Lodge on the Sandstone Bluffs above the River and a driveway One Mile long that Dead ended at the house, a wife and a 10 year old son, I walked away. Me and her was as different as Night and Day and I couldnít take it anymore. I have Never Regretted the Decision to Run and Save my Unborn Son and I have Never Regretted that I walked away. I Do Regret All the Pain I have caused with decisions I made in my life. Lots of Pain. This story doesnít have a Happy Ever After Ending, Not by a Long Shot. But My Son now has Two Sons Of his on. The Bankston name will carry on with Levi and Lincoln. All because I Refused to Not have a Choice. I refused to be silenced as I Raised My Voice, For Life of My Unborn Son!! Men, Stand Up!! That is Your Children that are being killed too! Fight back for your Right as a Father!! It might not have a Fairy Tale Ending but thatís Life! Nothing worth Fighting For is Never Easy and comes with Sacrifice. Do the Right Thing and May the Angels Rejoice and Sing.
I could tell many more stories of the adventures we had on that trip. Tomorrow I will post more and a few pictures from that month on the Run. If my story helps One Girl decide to keep, love and raise her unborn child, if my story helps inspire one guy to love that girl if only for a little while so that child can be born, if my story stops an abortion that would have otherwise been done, then I have accomplished what God put on my Heart to do. This is not about attention for me or condemning others, this is about saving the Unborn Children. Gods Children. You Do Have A Choice, Make the Right One.

Deer Season

Me and my grandsons had another great deer season on my farm. All total we killed 7 nice bucks. Mason started the season with a big spike during youth season. I killed a big 7 point before Thanksgiving then a fine high racked 8 point two days after Christmas. I went and picked Cayden up Friday and that evening I killed another nice 7 point then Saturday evening I sat in our shooting house with Cayden and had him pass on some Doeís then just before dark a real nice 7 point came out and Cayden made a perfect shot with his 7mm-08. Davy killed the other two bucks, both 7 points and real nice deer. I also killed a wild hog. I had two of them during Turkey season show up when they werenít bigger than a beagle dog. I went to feeding them everyday with my young steers and heifers and they got calmed down enough I petted one of them off and on. Older they got the wilder they started to get. One was a female so when I got the chance last month at a deer feeder, I took her out before she started having litters. Best sausage patties Iíve ever eaten. My great uncle had this farm for many years before I got it. He bred Duroc and Hampshire meat hogs into the wild ones he would trap them cut them back loose in Black Branch Swamp. These two pigs definitely had some meat hog influence because they had good hams on them. Been Coon hunting off and on. Not as hard as I use to but I still go. Just have the 3, Bo, Roxy and Josey. Me and my son Shane and his oldest, Levi, taking a trip next week to hunt the Yazoo Refuge in the Delta. Be my fourth year in a row to go to the delta. Itís nice to hunt some different, better woods with more coon every now and then. Still doing a lot of Native American Artifact collecting. I started it after my neck surgery 5 years ago. I counted all my different points, arrowheads, scrapers, knife blades and such the other day and have well over a thousand total. On my land a creek runs through the middle and I have the river here at home. Bought an old two bottom plow a couple years ago. Plow up a half acre then wait on the heavy rain then go with a bucket and fill it up with artifacts. Every little rise above the creek bottom will have them if you plow the ground. Ole Bo will be 10 years old in June. Hard to believe him and my adventures are just about done. Most likely this trip to the Delta will be his last road trip. Time sure gets away from ya when your retired and not in a hurry any more. Seems like time speeds up.

Liars

Been hunting Bo and Roxy a little. Not near like I use to but I let them stretch their legs now and then. Bo looks really good every time I take him. For a old dog that donít get hunted much he sure makes me proud. Been blessed lately as I watch God tend to business. Itís amazing what can happen when you turn it all over to him instead of plotting revenge or payback yourself. Some call it Karma, I call it God punishing the Liars and Rumor spreaders. If I did half the things I hear Iíve done or been accused of doing I would be dead or in prison but yet, here I am, enjoying my great life. Never been arrested or charged with a crime in my life. Let them keep running their stupid mouths, as Jesus said about the hypocrite Christians, they have their reward. Closer I get to God, the further from people I want to be. We are definitely in the end times as people have become lovers of themselves and only believe lies and turn from the truth. It would surprise many to know the one lying and spreading false rumors the most. His time is near. When heís gone, I will still be here. Bo and Roxy split the other night. She was on a big den and Bo had went 900 yards deeper and was on the river bank on a huge oak. Had a big boar Coon I put down to him. Only shot 4 coons this past season. Didnít hunt a lot so didnít take many. Should be more to run this fall. I sold out of the beef cattle business. Itís a money pit that eats away at your wallet to much for my liking. Itís a great tax shelter if you still work but Iíve been retired 7 years now so it donít help me get any money back because I donít make any. Just wasnít worry it even though I enjoyed fooling with them. Been hunting Native American Artifacts and bought a nice metal detector Iím about to start using. I know where several very old homesites from the 1800ís are so Iím gonna try and find some lost gold. My chickens had been laying a lot of eggs for the past few months but the other evening the coyotes got all of them. So out of chicken business to. Just gonna let my farm be for wildlife. You donít have to keep it fenced in, fed everyday, vaccinated or report as income when you sell or kill it. Government is out to push all small farmers out of business, trying to control it all and us. Been working around the house and on my river bank the past month. We had 3 weeks of warm dry weather and it sure was nice. Boiled up crawfish several different times and doing some fishing. My Purple Martins showed up on March 1st this year. I have a dozen in the gourds by my corral at the farm. Love to hear them singing and chattering in the mornings and flying back in before sunset. Turkeys been gobbling good. Getting a little rain right now, more tonight so Bo wonít get to go tree a couple. Maybe tomorrow night.

Rolling Fork Mississippi and others

Please keep the folks of Rolling Fork Mississippi to Winona in your prayers. They were hit by what appears to be a EF-5 wedge tornado last night and early morning reports are at least 23 dead and expected to be more. The drone videos I have seen are awful. Worse than war zones, the destruction is catastrophic. Times like this I wish I was a rich man so I could go help communities rebuild. As great a country as we are when things like this happen it seems politicians run to get some tv exposer and voted but a month later the people and tragedies are forgotten about. Truly sad. Rolling Fork is in the Delta up from Vicksburg and close to the Yazoo Refuge I like to hunt a few nights each year. Close to Twin Oaks to. If you havenít heard look it up on Facebook and view the videos of whatís left of the towns. Heartbreaking.

BO X ROXY

Roxy started coming in heat two weeks ago. I got her bred to Bo on Good Friday and then again on Easter Sunday. I had his semen checked by the Vet and he said it looked great, especially great for a dog his age so excellent chance she will have me a few Bo pups. Iíve waited 2 years to make this cross. She will be 4 years old on June 26th, same day Bo turns 10. Uncle/Niece cross, shes off Boís half brother, Zero. This will put Bocephus as Grandsire on top side and Great Grandsire on bottom. Iím keeping to black headed male pups for myself and will get down to one by the time they a year to 18 months old. If it all works out and I have a young Coon hound out of this cross, he will be my last one. If it donít work out, Bo is my last one. I donít have the drive and desire for it I once did. My fire is dying down as life takes itís toll. Iím hoping a pup from this cross will rekindle that fire for a few more years of adventures in Black Branch Swamp.

Steve, I hope you get exactly what you want out of this cross. I love reading your posts and hope your fire and passion for coon hunting is rekindled. Best wishes for you and your hounds. Lord bless you.

Come Out in Jesus Name

Thanks Eddie, appreciate the encouragement. Now that Iíve sold out of the cattle business maybe I can get back into the groove of Coon hunting every night if I could get a good pup from this cross that excites me. I know most us old folks donít go to the movies anymore, I hadnít been in 30 years or more. But this week a movie put out by Pastor Greg Locke and others came out for two nights, Monday and Tuesday, across the nation. Itís called, Come Out in Jesus Name. I went by myself to Hammond an hour drive one way to see it then went back again and brought a friend the next night. Itís about evil spirits and demons that need cast out. The things Jesus did in His days but no pastors talk about anymore because it makes people uncomfortable and when they get uncomfortable they quit coming to church and the money quits coming in. Everyone just wants to go to church for the feel good feeling it gives them to sing and be seen smile and put on a good show for man, not God. Then go home and fight the demons inside them alone, behind closed doors and continue to sin and turn their backs on their friends. This movie is outstanding and draws attention to how far away from the truth all churches have fallen just to make people feel more comfortable and good about themselves. If it shows again I highly recommend everyone that believes in God and trying to live a better life by digging deeper for more of the truth to go see this movie. Look up Pastor Greg Locke on Facebook, heís a warrior for Christ. Most people thst donít like him think they just fine the way they are, no reason to change or try to draw closer to God. They in their comfort zone and donít want to be any different. Thatís exactly why this country is where it is today. To many lazy, comfortable people that continue to ignore the truth of what is happening all around us.

BO X ROXY PUPS

Took Roxy to Covington La. this morning to Green, Lewis and Associates Vetinary and Reproductive Clinic and they did the Ultrasound on Roxy. We counted 5 or 6 for sure pups in her. I was really hoping and praying she was gonna have me some Bo pups, now that Iíve sold the beef cattle and decided I want to put all my time and effort into one more pup and if he makes it i want to travel the country Coon hunting and site seeing. Selling the John Deere tractor and loader with attachments at the farm and using the money to buy me a nice camper to pull with my truck. Fall, early Winter and then again in the spring I want to be going different places and staying a month at the time Coon hunting, competition hunting and visiting fellow Coon hunters and site seeing. Itís time to quit dreaming up different projects around the house or farm to do that keeps me to busy and hurting to much to enjoy the good things in life I loved for many years. I prayed to God if it wasnít His will then I didnít want Roxy to have any pups and I would just sell her snd finish Coon hunting old Bo for the next couple years and be done. God Willing, the pup I keep from this litter will be the once in a lifetime freak we all dream of having and I can do him justice. Hoping to write the book Iíve thought about writing and so many people all across the country encouraged me to write over the years. Strangers that read stories or poems I wrote and loved my writing style. While on the road, free from the stress of a farm or the flooding river life I sometimes have to deal with, my mind and heart will hopefully settle down snd come together to write a best seller. This starts the last chapter of my life, the first step of that dream started today with that Ultrasound on Roxy. We reach our goals with consistent, small steps and Gods help.

Amen! Amen! Amen!
The people are looking for an end time revival, but the bible teaches there would be a great falling away. They are falling away from the Truth.

Mr. Frank Erwin

The man that helped me get into Coon hunting and tried to show me his way of doing it for many years as we tromped through the thickets and swamps of Louisiana and Mississippi, passed away peacefully this morning. Mr Frank Erwin of Kentwood, La. I had a grade Bluetick I called Sam but didnít have a clue how to Coon hunt in my early 20ís. Mr Frank invited me down well before daylight one summer morning to meet and hunt with him. He cooked us up a breakfast of biscuits with cheese grated into the dough and sausage. Treated me like he had known me all my life and made me feel more welcome than anybody ever has. He sold me my first registered Bluetick over 30 years ago, Bonnie. Sheís buried here at my place on the bank of the Bogue Chitto River. Not because she was thst great of a coon dog because at best, just average. Mine donít get better the longer they been dead. Sheís buried here because of the great respect I have for Mr Frank and because she was my first Coon dog thst would actually stay treed longer than 5 minutes. Mr Frank was a character, a tough, tell it like it is, great old character of a man that this country is needing many more like him. A God fearing, family loving and protecting, hard working man. You didnít have to ever wonder what he was thinking because it always found itís way out his mouth whether you liked it or not. No beating around the bushes, hinting and suggesting BS with him. He laid it out clear for anyone to understand. We got along great until John Wick wrote a book called Walk With Wick. After I read it a couple times and seen that Mr Frankís way of training might not be the only way, in the middle of a possum whooping contest on our two sorry hounds, he would look up all red faced and sweat pouring and ask, what would Wick Do?!! Boy, he didnít like it when I would suggest Wick might do it a little different, lol!! Me and him had some times for many years. I bought a Colt .22 pistol from him one night. He couldnít hit squat with it and had bought it new. This was 30 years ago when I bought it. He said he got it in the late 60ís or early 70ís. It has the .22 magnum cylinder to. I went in my home after midnight waking my wife up asking where the check book was. Of course she wanted to know why. I told her Mr Frank was waiting on me to write the check for a pistol I was buying for 175 bucks. We barley had 200 in our account and she wasnít happy but I wear the pants in my home and I wrote that check. Still have the gun and will til the day I die, wouldnít take a million bucks for it right now. He was a true friend, if he had a problem with you or heard something he didnít like he would straight up ask you. He never wanted anything to fester, never spread lies or rumors. A True Christian Man thatís blowing his horn calling the hounds in Heaven right now. Cut Mighty Blue Magnum, Dolly, Glenda, Bonnie and Mighty Blue Jake a loose tonight Mr Frank. I will be along shortly to help you round them back up.
