    Thanks Mark. I’ve posted that link on my FB page.

    fostering a child – truly splendid! may God bless all who can open themselves to that degree.

  • Long before these children hit the border, they are in deep trouble. Going from Guatemala, the nearest of the source countries hitting the border, they have to travel the entire length of Mexico, a minimum trip of 1200 miles and very likely much longer than that because they have to dodge the mexican border control people, the police along the way, and the criminal gangs that prey on migrants.

    The link provides good advice for practical action close to home. The link is also not scoping the problem correctly.

    When you have over a thousand people riding a freight train on a regular basis, there are a number of them, disproportionately kids, who are going to get bounced off, fall off, or get thrown off. They will be hurt or killed. The problem is what we’re doing that has suddenly led to orders of magnitude larger numbers to take these crazy risks to make it here.
