(A small boy laid dead by the sea. Who do we blame? All of us are to be blamed. We locked our borders and building walls. Where do the homeless, the unwanted go? The new world need to remember. All of us are immigrants. Moving and living on earth. Just loaning the land till we are gone)
The Native American prayer
Once Native American Chief asked, “You want to buy the land, why do you want to buy the land? Land isn’t to be bought and sold. The land is given to the all of us to live upon. How can you own the land?
“Mercy be the one, who share his food with the person in need.
Kind heart is the man who offer friendship to a stranger,
We live upon the soil, that create our food. The great sky is above for us, the moon and sun shine for everyone.
The earth is large and wide, we must get along for the sake of the children.
Hate and regret, great rocks of burden to hold us down.
Wise man listen and pay attention to the world.
We are one people and this is one earth.”
“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-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
Women are escaping places that are hell. Men and women are escaping dangerous places, Christians being murdered because of their faith. Closed doors and great walls will leave no place for people who need a safe haven. I pray we know. USA, born of immigrants and the doors should be open for the needy.
“The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respected Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges…”
Illegal immigrant, a dirty word. All life matters. I live in a place when Europeans, Middle East and Latino people live in peace with each other. Someone should teach this generation. Once the western states belonged to Mexicans and the Native Americans. The White people stole the land. They are the immigrants. The western states been the home of the Mexican people and Native American people for 5,000 year.
