A great wall along the entire border between America and Mexico will divide families and suppress the human rights of the undocumented immigrants now living in America who, under a Trump regime, most definitely will get deported—will be sent back to Mexico. It is futile to think that said proposed wall will ever be able to “mend” (repair what is broken in) America. The uncomfortable truth is that not even a good wall will make us—Americans and Mexicans—good neighbors who are peaceful, loving, caring, fair, unprejudiced, helpful, selfless, and impartial.
Mother’s Day is a time for having warm thoughts and fond memories about your mother, who may or may not be alive. It also is a time for ALL mothers to continue to be (or seek to become) the kind of mother that their children will say is patient, encouraging, strong, generous, and the giver of unwavering love!
