Let's talk about: Illegal Immigration

I know, I know, I just lost like, all of you. But hear me out.

Have you been keeping tabs on how many stories there are these days of kids who are being detained at the US border?

KIDS. Children, literally, being jailed. I mean, can you honestly tell me there in't something wrong with that? That your heart doesn't break a little bit at the sound of that?

Anyway, if you've been following me on Instagram then you'll know that i've been thinking about it.

And I know I really don't have a large readership on here, which I'm really okay with, but, on the off chance that you're actually reading this. Literally, really, actually reading the words on this screen, do you have any thoughts to share?

When you think about illegal immigration, where do your thoughts tend to go? Are your thoughts negative? Positive? Neutral? Is it something you think about at all or is it something you'd prefer to avoid because it's awkward or uncomfortable?

Really, I am just curious. My goal isn't to try to sway you tot think like I do nor is it to give you "all the right answers," (surprise, I don't have them!) I really just want to talk about it.

'Cause I think it's important. Besides, when I started this old thing that was the goal, to talk about the things that I found important or meaningful.

Anyway, I've said so much lately that I don't want to share what I think right away but if you're curious you can follow that link above from Instagram and you'll get a sense.

SO, any thoughts, book recommendations, website links to share?

I'd really appreciate it
