Stuck between two worlds

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

A few people, incited by our very own Sheriff Babeu (shame on him) decided to take a stand against 40 refugee children who will possibly be hosted at the Boys Camp in Peppersauce Canyon until legally and duly processed by the Federal Government – as per a law in the books and signed on by no other than Republican President George W. Bush only a few short years ago.

That these people cannot find compassion and empathy for these kids is one thing, but that they contact the news media and claim to represent all in our community is insulting to me and countless others with whom I talked.

Had they call a town meeting to actually find out where others in the community stood on the issue, I could respect  their opinion – although I could never endorse demonstrations or other actions that would inflict pain, physical or emotional, on innocent children. When these self-appointed leaders decided to claim representing the sentiment of the Oracle and Tri-Community population at large, they crossed over thousands of people’s Rights and Liberty, and their orchestrated protest became condemnable.

But then what should we expect of people who do not show an ounce of compassion for children who are stuck between two worlds: one of haves and life, and one of have-nots and death.

Thank you,
