One Of Those Posts


Into the darkness.

This is one of those posts. One of those posts when the picture has very little to do with the writing. When the picture is more-or-less there to catch your eye. It’s a summertime picture, made after a rain storm so the greens are sparkling. I helped it by darkening the shadows and adding a vignette.

That’s about all.

Today, I want to talk about children. Children kept in cages. Screaming children, Crying children. Terrified children. Children who are apparently being used as bargaining chips by the subhuman who runs my country. The subhuman whose defenders tell lies, lies and more lies. The subhuman whose actions with the children have been condemned by the four living first ladies. By just about every church body including the subhuman’s normal supporters. By those on the left. By those on the right. Even by Ted Cruz, for whom I have no use.

Still they persist. They blame everybody but themselves for putting children in cages. For separating children from their mamas. And, from their papas. They don’t even have a system for reuniting children with their families.

Yet, they persist. The subhuman screams on twitter. His minions can’t get the story straight. What have we done?

To my friends from other places, please let me say that this is not my country. This is not my America. These are not my leaders. My country is open. We are tough, but we are fair. We are not cruel. We try to do the right thing. We are kind.

To those who say that the children’s parents are breaking a law, just shut up. You have no idea what these people have gone through. They are coming to The United States not just for a better life, but for a safe life. One in which they can survive. Until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes, I’ll say it again, shut up. Oh, and you can stop following Storyteller.

One more thing. Children are sacred to me. Protect them. Care for them. Hold them. Love them. The minute you cross the line to abuse, you are dead to me. The subhuman and his administration crossed the line.

Do I sound angry? Very angry?

Good.

    1. Pete Hamill, one of my heroes, a great editor and writer and another Brooklyn boy, said that Trump is just another of those wannabe bullies who ran away when a fight broke out on the street corner. I knew them then. I know him know.

  1. And the church said “Amen.” Again.

    Seeking asylum is *legal.* That’s what people lose track of.

    And concentration camps (let’s call them what they are) for BABIES? Jeff Sessions’ investments in private prisons are paying off in spades … because that’s who is running these concentration camps. We need to call them what they are.

    I’m so outraged that I don’t know what to write, so I thank you … and I add my voice to yours. I am embarrassed to be American these days. We had an eloquent, beautiful First Family for eight years … and angry racists put in this Hitler wannabe. 😦

    1. Write your truth. I’ll support you. So will many others. If we had a place to go, we’d go there. But his actions are hurting the rest of the world. There is no escape unless we do something. Something legal and game changing.
