Twittering birds began their rabble-rousing earlier than usual this summer solstice morning.
I enjoy listening to their conversations and energy as I wake.
This morning I’m praying for a better day for the thousands of detained immigrant children spending agonizing days and nights without their parents or someone to comfort them in their distress.
I’m praying for the moral treatment and morale of our country to do better.
I’m thankful for the hundreds of organizations, thousands of Americans, and others around the globe signing petitions, and calling on elected officials to do something more humane for refugees/immigrants.
My own personal problems are minuscule by comparison. There is no comparison for babies and children ripped from their parent’s arms.
I’m heartened by those who are showing up at airports, detention centers, and their elected official’s offices to show their support of the refugees and their anger about the existing law.
I’m grateful for the many organizations who are helping refugees and those who are using social media about the places to donate. (One organization is Raices).
As the quote above states:
Let all things live with loving intent.
Today, all things seem possible. I’m praying more people will live with compassion and loving intent.
Make your summer solstice day one of random acts of kindness, a supportive word, a hug, a smile.
