I can only imagine that the ultimate goal of separating children from their parents is to send a message that the United States is not a safe place to which to flee. There are people with great power who want to change the image of the United States of America. They cultivate fear. They disagree with the words mounted on the Statue of Liberty, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
There is no delusion that we have ever truly lived into those words. American greed is legendary. Yet, ideals have power to inspire those of us with a hope for the flourishing of not only the rich + powerful...but of all life on this planet. Love drives out fear. Hope + love can create freedom for all of us.
