Like many, we have just returned from a wonderful Independence Day holiday with our family. As I cuddled our safe and healthy grandbabies, I kept thinking about the innocent children who are not safe, currently in the custody of the United States, and reportedly kept in filthy, inhumane conditions.
It is time to come to bipartisan agreement that all children deserve to be given proper care and returned to their parents as soon as possible. We are failing as a free society, and must share in the responsibility of correcting this wrong. Write or call your legislators. Demand that finger-pointing between political parties stop, and that immigration policies be enacted to support the dignified treatment of all people.
If we fail, we are not holding true to the Christian beliefs many of us espouse.
