Families belong together
The TV at the gym today was on CNN so I was watching it while I worked out and it really bothered me but also really moved me.
I saw part of Alicia Keys speaking and also part of America Fererra speaking. They made very valid points when they said "this isn't a color thing. This isn't a race thing. This is a human thing." And I absolutely agree.
What do demonstrators and supporters want?
- Separated migrant families to be reunited immediately
- Government to end family detentions
- The Trump Administration to end its "zero tolerance" immigration policy
"Kids are not pawns. Families are not pawns. It's that simple. This is not about politics. This is about who we are as a country. We must stand together and stand up when we see injustice anywhere." (MoveOn)
I also heard a great quote by the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "silence is betrayal." Think about that one.
