We all understand we need immigration reform. But this is not American. This is not human. This is the most heartbreaking week in Trump’s America. Our President is holding almost 2000 innocent children hostage by enforcing NEW policy (he’s flat-out lying that he didn’t create this-proving he knows it’s wrong), separating families, and blaming Democrats for it for not agreeing to his pointless, racist border wall. He has continued to manipulate public opinion, has the power to stop this, and yet dangles these kids’ lives for political leverage with his base. THOSE people are the minority in this country. Those people are being poisoned by 24/7 propaganda on @foxnews. I’ve watched it all week long, and their sleek strategic ways in persuading their audiences to believe entitled falsehoods and half-truths honestly make me want to cry. It’s so seductive, effective, should be illegal, and it’s not going anywhere. Our President is being personally investigated for conspiracy crimes and obstruction of justice...his campaign manager is in JAIL today for colluding with a hostile foreign government who wanted to weaken our democracy (irrefutable facts)...and yet his approval ratings rise. This doesn’t add up. But it’s a comfortable place for a lot of people to stay in; to take a small percentage of a group of “others” who commit crimes, and blame them for your misfortunes. You know what’s not comfortable? Raising kids in unsustainable conditions. I look up to the incredible courage and obstacles that my immigrant family faced when migrating here. They sought opportunities for their children to lead safe and successful lives. Things we luckily never had to imagine doing. Families like them enrich our country, they don’t threaten it. And yet here we are. Father’s Day is tomorrow and these kids are expected to sleep without their parents in a warehouse. I’ve said it many times, and I will say it again: Anyone who still supports Trump will be a part of an everlasting stain on American history. I worry this will only get worse, the more scapegoats @foxnews fuels into its audiences....but I truly hope America will find itself once this is all over.
As @benazarraga and I decorate our new place, I’m realizing how proud I am of the amount of STUFF we have purged. We LOVED our place downtown (I took these photos the day before we started packing). It was beautiful and felt like home...but ultimately we ended up accumulating too many unnecessary THINGS. I liked being surrounded by trinkets I loved, but minimizing has become very therapeutic. I love exercising the ability to LET GO even more. #letgo #offerup
We ordered a reuben sandwich from the pub downstairs on the very first night we lived downtown. So we saw it only fitting to order that same sandwich on our official last day. Nothing more romantic than corned beef & sauerkraut bookending (sandwiching?) this 5 year chapter. Onto the next! 🥪🌆🥪
