Our shared values define us more than our differences.  And acknowledging those shared values can see us through our challenges today if we have the wisdom to trust in them again.

This is the America we live in…
In this country, professional athletes can be blackballed from employment or fined by the their league for peaceful protest against an unfair criminal justice system.  And, the President can call them: “SOB’s” who should be fined or fired or deported.
In this country, the executive branch (President) can use border control and immigration staff to forcibly separate children from their parents because the families are seeking entry into the United States.  Some of the families are attempting to enter illegally.  Some are attempting to enter legally and seeking asylum.  Some are attempting to enter illegally and seeking asylum.  It is my understanding ALL groups are having their families / children separated until the asylum request has been adjudicated and / or the illegal entries have been processed.  And the kicker is there is no system to track which children are which and / or track them for reunification with their parents / family once a decision has been made.
The President is blaming the Democrats because they haven’t solved the immigration problem – even though it is the Republicans which control both houses of Congress, the Executive Branch and conservative Justices (appointed by Republican Presidents) form the majority of the US Supreme Court.
The Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security says: “We are just doing our job trying to enforce the laws…”
For once, I can agree with a Republican: Senator John McCain (on Twitter):
“The administration’s current family separation policy is an affront to the decency of the American people, and contrary to principles and values upon which our nation was founded.  The administration has the power to rescind this policy.  It should do so now.”
But remember, according to President Trump: It is the Fake News (Free Press) which is the Country’s greatest enemy.
