Hear The Children’s Cries As They Are Separated From Parents Seeking Asylum At US SW Border


Gronda Morin

Thanks to the media outlet Propublica, we have access to the above video. Please be aware that the sound of the children’s wailing as they are being separated from their parents seeking asylum at the US southwest border, are heartbreaking.

This is a new protocol that was started with President Donald Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions with his April 6, 2018 memo. As per Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the president can end this practice of separating children from the parents with one phone call. Telling the migrants to apply for asylum at the US designated points of entry is not a realistic direction as most peoples are being turned away. There are stories about peoples waiting weeks to gain entry.

As per international law, it is NOT illegal for peoples fleeing danger, persecution, war like circumstances, to ask for asylum.

Any other republican talking point other than the above…

Tin Soldier


lifelessons - a blog by Judy Dykstra-Brown

Tin Soldier

Petulant child, in a bit of a snit,
pooches his lips out. He’s having a fit.
He sets up tin soldiers in orderly rows.
Where they will be fighting, not even he knows.

Fast through the air, his tweets swiftly whistle,
delivering threats like an ICBM missile.
He casts insults northwards and south over borders
to Mexico, Canada and other quarters.

He’s saving his friendships for other bad boys.
With each fawning message his keyboard deploys,
he wishes their power were his for the taking.
Korea and Russia—what plots in the making.

His attention span just long enough for his tweeting,
he blusters his way through each conference and meeting.
Many are gap-jawed, yet nothing gets done
concerning disarming this smoking gun.

He’s expressing his own sort of odd concentration
by impounding children, expressing elation
that this will now curb illegal immigration.
How long will we let this…

Some vets utilize a Vaccine Titer Test to see if your pet needs further inoculations of various vaccines.  Vaccines carry health risks that increase when unneeded.  I had a beautiful cat named Clementine who got cancer at the injection site of a rabies vaccine.  Visit the website which can be seen in the bottom left hand corner of this photo to get more information.



Filosofa's Word

Do you remember when you were … oh, say four or five years old?  Before you started going to school … a time when your parents were your main contact and the people you looked to for safety, for security?  Now, try to imagine when you were that age, if your parents had taken you from the home you always knew, travelled a long distance, sometimes in buses, other times strangers’ vehicles, and often on foot.  And now, close your eyes and visualize that late one of those nights, as you are being carried by your mother, for you were just too tired to walk another step, and all of a sudden … BRIGHT LIGHTS, LOUD CRUEL VOICES, CRYING, SCREAMING … and suddenly you are grabbed roughly by a strange man wearing, of all things, a GUN, and you look around, but you cannot see your mother, though you can…

Are you shaking your head in disbelief about this administration’s separating children from their parents at the border and then citing the bible?  Is this incomprehensible to you?  Read M. Scott Peck’s book People of the Lie and come to a full understanding of what Trump, Sessions and the other members of the House and Senate that appear to have no consciences are all about.

Understanding and healing the Scapegoat within


Emerging From The Dark Night


The family scapegoat receives the shadow projections of the family. They are the one that carries and tries to express qualities, needs, reactions and expressions which may not have had a chance or live in the family.  Often if we review the family history we will be able to see a pattern or something the scapegoat is trying to live for the family that could not be expressed, or struggled to be expressed over generations.

There is also collective element to the scapegoat which means certain qualities in any particular culture are accepted and are seen as valuable to express where as others may be demonised. Religious beliefs create the scapegoat by dictating what is “holy” and what is “demonic” and so create splits. The pervasive spread of the Catholic zeitgeist, for example, reveres qualities of self sacrifice, meekness, chastity and in many ways a repression of essential elements of…
