My heart is heavy tonight...
How to change the mind of those you love. As I relate to the parents who are giving up their children it causes tears to fall down my cheeks.

Do I know all the facts? No.
Do I have all the answers? No.

How will it  impact my American life?

I feel the emotions from others rising around me. Most would explain it as hate. I see it is a fear.

Fear of change & of the unknown.

The head lines  read "The Immigrants are invading". More like refugees.

The arguing continues. Aren't they seeking HeLp, as they travel from different places, just as my ancestors once did. Seems to be a history long forgotten.

Why is it different today?

What if it was me?

Could I put my children on the bus?

Not knowing their fate, but with one last embrace. Left only with H.O.P.E. The sadness those parents are feeling Right.Now.  The confusion each child riding on the bus is experiencing.

 Standing up for God's word, even when it's not the popular thing to do.

I ask what would Jesus do if he was standing in the streets of America as the buses of "illegal immigrants" drove by?

I hear...

....."This is the great and foremost commandment. 39"The second is like it, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.'…Matthew 22:38-39

Yet I stand & call myself a CHRIST FOLLOWER.

Why am I here?
 For real, as on planet earth! Alive & breathing. To prosper!? Have that house paid off in 30 years. Yep, check. College degrees. Good paying jobs. Retirement fund in order.
 How quickly I lose focus. 

I don't have the easy button for the monumental problem my country is facing.

Who is by my side? I pray my sisters & brothers will see past the fear of change & remember JESUS was not white or an american. I pray I will be part of the solution & not a piece of the problem. This is my struggle.
