When terrified infants and children are separated from their parents and family members at our borders, America dies a little with the trauma of each child and parent.
When those who seek asylum are treated like criminals and subject to dangerous and inhumane conditions, America, and all it has symbolized through its history, dies even more.
When officials of the US government sexually abuse children in their custody, there is more death of America.
When officials of US government attempt to prevent young women who have been raped from having access to abortion, America is almost moribund in its cruelty and viciousness.
When those seeking refuge are forced to live in cages, deprived of the most basic human needs and children die while in the custody of the American government, the heart of America is truly dead.
When the chief executive officer of the United States seeks to prevent those entitled to do so from seeking, in compliance with American law, asylum in America, the rule of law in America dies, day by day.
Do you remember what America was?
"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Who will save America from those who are determined to kill her?
