I have tried very hard in this blog not to be political. I have extremely strong views, but I have attempted to keep them out of this site. I no longer can.
The United States of America, which has been the beacon of hope to the desperate of the world, now have become the nation that rips children from their parents. What is happening at the southern border is inexcusable. No American, regardless of political leaning, no matter if Democrat, Republic, or Independent, whether liberal, moderate, or conservative, should accept what our government is doing.
Attorney General Sessions used The Bible to justify these actions. I suggest he actually consider the lesson that Jesus gave in Matthew 19:14 “But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” The action of the government, separating children from asylum-seeking parents, is an abomination. And Jesus would not have approved.
When did the United States of America lose its compassion? My parents were the generation that fought World War Two, defeating the worst threat to freedom ever faced by the world: fascism, especially under Hitler. Let us remember that Hitler began with attacks on children.
If you have children or grandchildren and needed help to get them to safety, would you not expect aid from The United States of America?
Where is our decency?
It is time to stand up and say no more.
We will not treat families this way.
We will not take children from parents.
We say no more!
