What’s the problem?

This one is ranty, and a copy of a Facebook post I made. Usually I don’t rant on FB, but sometimes I just can’t help myself. At the bottom, you’ll find a link to a great site that helps these kids mentioned in my rant.

People post all their (unchecked) “facts” and posts about immigration and how it’s “ruining” our country, and all that rubbish. Do you realize that CHILDREN are in crisis, and they’re trying to flee danger? Children are trying to cross the border because they’re afraid to remain in their homes? They’re leaving behind everything they know in hopes of something or some place better or safer. Those little kids, immigrants, who only want safety.

And people whine because immigrants might get a job or some help from our government? What if your kids were in that situation? What if your kids needed help? These “immigrants” you’re whining about? They’re trying to make decent lives for themselves and their children just like anyone else. What happened to compassion? What happened to kindness? What happened to helping others, and being human?

THIS is why I do not stand for the pledge. This is why I shake my head in concern and shame when I see posts about how awful welfare, and immigrants, and so on. NOT because I’m not patriotic, but because this country has become a place of self-centeredness, greed, and “Do for yourself what you refuse to do for others.”

While you’re bitching about how much you’re losing to “immigrants” or people on welfare, think about how much you actually have.
