An old acquaintance on Facebook made a comment about my stance on the Border Children issue.

I think it is our responsibility as humans to take them in & take care of them. Give them the best possible chance like any other child, like we want for our own children.

The person who commented said they would never send their kids hundreds of miles to a strange place but I think he’s wrong. And this is my response to him.

Really? Even if it meant saving them from death? From slavery? From a life that you know they will NEVER get a chance?

Yes, any parent that truly loved their child would take that risk. Because the alternative is so much worse. Think of the parents who gave their children to soldiers during the Vietnam War begging them to take them to America for a better life. All the way back to the Europeans who sent their children alone on boats across the Atlantic to the New World because they could only afford to send them. What about during WWII all the children sent out of Paris & London to the homes of strangers to save them from being bombed.

Parents have been making that heartbreakingly hard decision since the dawn of humanity to send their kids away in hopes they make it to a better place.

The difference between then & now is that back then we as humans were a lot more caring & altruistic.

So before you make judgements on the parents who are sending their children over the border, think about what you would do for your child to give them a better life…

Then think about all the children out there in this country, right now, who need homes. The foster system is filled with children just waiting for the right person to take them in & show them they matter.

the true american experience is wondering if you just heard firecrackers or gunshots

PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS A JOKE

bonus points: both are illegal in your state and you still cannot tell

Both are legal in my state & it scares me because there was a gun shot mixed in with the firecrackers the other night & no one found the body until the morning. :-/ a kid shot himself at the park I take my son to….

Just some of the details I threw together last minute for my husband’s bday dinner. It was supposed to be a small, informal affair, but I thought of a few things while he was watching Doctor Who last night. :)

Awesome. Hugh Jack is the man

Lol for those who don’t know, Wolverine is only supposed to be about 5’2”. That’s always been my only problem with Hugh cast in the part.

All the short guys finally had a superhero to look up to (figure of speech) but Hugh in the part makes the actually have to look up. :-/

waywardism:

I’m reposting this (as a shorter version) because I’m still in a deseparate situation.

  • I have two months to find a new place to live and I’m really struggling to get the money together for a deposit
  • I’m trying to escape an abusive, creepy landlord, who we’ve discovered HAS…

I wish I could help but I’m strapped for money too instead I’ll signal boost. :) hope you find something soon.

So stoked about the Hobby Lobby ruling today. Officially going to incorporate myself so I can get a religious exemption for my student loans debt they violate my deeply held religious conviction that all debts are supposed to be forgiven every seven years, as per the book of Deuteronomy.
