I don’t mean to be Debbie Downer for today’s Three Things, but I cannot be silent on this.
My three things today are just one huge thing that has been weighing heavily on my mind and my heart over the past weeks.
May 7 Sessions gave a speech that was more than a warning shot across the bow of the humane treatment of immigrants coming to our nation. And, just like that – with a few words of hate – we became something incredibly vile and evil.
Since the “Zero Tolerance” policy too effect, more than 1,300 children have been taken away from their families and in the past days reports of how separated families are being treated are coming to light.
Today, Families Belong Together is taking a stand. There might be an event near you that you can participate in, but better than that there is a virtual event today – Lunchtime for Change – complete with links for petitions and how to get in touch with your elected officials complete with a script for your call.
If you do only do one thing today…make a phone call. We cannot be silent.
