Aside from politics, which have gotten to be so depressing on all sides, what has happened to people’s basic decency? Reading the Bible as a child, as well as reading about other religions, I believed we were to love one another, not just those who looked like us, but everyone.
All religions talk about love, taking care of people and showing hospitality and compassion. For just a moment, put yourself in someone else’s shoes. If you were fleeing from death, rape or human trafficking, would you not pray for someone to aid you? There has to be a better way to do things than what we are doing currently.
Let’s use our minds and hearts to do that which is just and right. After all, we were all immigrants at one time. Let us treat one another with respect.
