Less despair

In March I wrote about taking my kids and dad to a rally in support of the 300+ workers who had been detained by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

Today I was back in that part of the state and I try to pick up a paper in each town I'm visiting. This was the huge photo on the front page.

Huzzah!

Less despair, sort of. But more than 300 others were detained, and Mr. Mendez isn't even allowed to work until SEPTEMBER at the earliest. It's so, so wrong. But at least this is one step in the right direction. My heart really goes out to these families.

Woah! Brillig - I thought you didn't read the paper? Very current of you.

What a glorious photo.
A step in the right direction indeed. Small, but at least there is that.

I'm so glad Brillig's featuring you, and that I thought to click the link. I've read the first page of your blog and am looking forward to more.
