I’ve missed a few days of the ever wide ning executive orders that come out of our current government.
Picking back up on our days since the inauguration of our new president, I hope that the following can be an open reminder to all inhabitants of our pale blue dot, that in our race to become safe and border secure, we not forget Alan Kurdi.
Do you remember this image?
That’s Alan, the 3 year old refugee from Syria, who, if we were alive today, would learn that last Friday, the Executive Order from our president of the United States is not helping our most desperate of citizens here on our pale blue dot.
Let us please remember our most desperate of citizens like Alan.
Let us rise above the fear, and do what Jesus Christ most assuredly would have done; accept people who are escaping war torn regions of our planet with open arms, and with love.
From today, I’d like to share this podcast again, and ask you to focus in on just the 23rd minute of the broadcast.
You only need to listen to between the 23rd and the 25th minutes of this broadcast, and I think, maybe, just maybe, your heart would soften to our most desperate on the planet?
May we all react in love and kindness despite our government’s responses to the contrary.
Love always wins. Always.
No matter what, please find a way to love in these dark, despairing times.
Reject violence and hatred, even when it seems impossible to do so.
To Mr. Trump, please reconsider your order from last Friday.
I beg you.
It’s not too late to change your mind on this.
Your order does not reflect well on who we are as a country of immigrants and refugees, a country that welcomes people of all religions, creeds, and walks of life.
This order you signed does not even remotely come close to reflecting the true goodness, love, and kindness that the American people feel toward those in need.
As always, thank you for stopping by.
