It’s Friday, I am home with my kids. I am blessed to have the chance to work from home here and there – I really can’t complain.
As I went on to check Social Media today though, I was heartbroken at the horrible images and headlines about kids being separated from their parents trying to cross the border. Don’t stop reading yet though, trust me. This will be a very honest, blog. I’ll try to stay cordial but there’s things that need to be said.
I know the news have to give us the best of the best although most of the time it’s the best of the worst… With that said, have you ever imagined reading about more good than bad in this world. What if our daily headlines were about Love and kindness and not about Mass shootings, killings, HATE!
I’ve stopped writing for quite a while now simply because I can’t find the correct words… there are no right words.
Was it the fear about being judged? Perhaps, but we are now living in a world that anything or anyone can offend us. Trust me, I’ve done it too. Being a Hispanic person born and raised in L.A. – NEVER have visited Mexico once (the place where my parents came from) yet I get the look too. I know many white people, African Americans, Asians, you name it yet I won’t deny that deep down I wonder if they are thinking what most people now a days think… Immigrant. This entire color fight of who belongs or not is painful.
Then I read comments like “If they see what’s happening while crossing, why do they keep trying?” Believe me, I get that. As a parent, I can only imagine what this families are going through trying to do what’s best for their children. What this Administration is doing is what many have been thinking for years… it just happens that now we have a person in the white house that shows us exactly what many have been feeling for years. True colors are out!
I hope that one day we can all finally see what each one of us is as a person and not just what we get to see on the outside. I don’t believe it will get better anytime soon… Truth is that we are learning to live in a day in age where people are being honest about who they really are.
For those fighting, keep fighting!
For those changing, I thank you!
For those quoting religious quotes with all this madness – SHAME ON YOU! (Yes, I said it)
We are ALL equal.
There’s so much beauty around us. Just stop and look, smile at someone new today, you will feel better about yourself and life.
