It is the end of the world as we know it

Yesterday I was taking pictures of bird's nests in my yard. Today men in combat gear with stocking masks on their faces invaded my neighborhood and grabbed working mothers, fathers and children. 
An area nursery was raided at the same time as a trailer park a few blocks from my home. Workers were rounded up and tied with twist ties. After a few hours, those who could prove they were American citizens were released. Yes, American citizens were grabbed, yelled at, herded and tied up until they could prove their citizenship. 

Meanwhile the same situation was happening at the trailer park where family members were baby sitting the children of the workers. Children that were playing at the neighborhood park yesterday while I was walking by with my granddaughter in her stroller. Children who are now frightened, hungry, cold and terrified by the loss of their parents who have been taken away without a hug goodbye or even knowledge of where their parents have gone. Since they are not citizens, the government does not have to give any information to the families. 

I cannot believe this is how Jesus wants us to treat fellow human beings. It is like living in a horror movie. I never thought I would see the United States of America become an armed camp of militants. I cannot stop crying.

  1. I am so sad for this. Your tender heart must be broken to see all that trauma and sadness. Surreal times.
