Guest post of the week by Deangelo Spencer
My youngest daughter lives in Millstadt, Illinois, a small rural town, in the southwestern part of the state, bordering Missouri. The population is less than five thousand and most of them are of German descent, one of which is my son-in-law. My daughter is a GRITS – a girl raised in the south, and, having been raised in a much larger city than Millstadt, she initially had a difficult time adjusting to life there. Her husband works in the family business. He knew he would settle back there after college, which is where he met my daughter, so she will always live in Millstadt. I have been to visit several times and found it be a quaint little town. I will be visiting more than ever now that I have a grandchild there! One of the first things I encouraged my daughter and son-in-law to do while they were expecting was call millstadt home security and have a security system installed. She tells me it was the best decision she and her husband ever made.
