In The End, We All Go Back To Where We Came From

Above is a picture I took today here in Houston of the grave of Vidal Ramirez Garcia.

The grave says that Mr. Garcia was a private first class in the army during World War II.

I don’t know anything about Mr. Garcia. But it seems that he was a man of Hispanic origin who served the United States in a time of war.

Today we hear stories about people who have been in the United States for many generations being told to go back where they came from.

In the end, we all back to where we came from.

We have a choice as individuals.

We can go on about if the President is from Kenya and blame immigrants for our own problems, or we can be welcoming to our fellow human beings as they seek a better life in a tough world.

This is the choice we have.

This does not mean we can’t have laws regarding immigration or that those laws should not be enforced.

What it does mean though, is that we allow anger to guide our public policy we lose any chance of being a decent people.

  3. After retiring from teaching for 30 yrs., I’ve always realized there is deep Racism, against anyone not old American.These Tea party people are, spreading Discord, one of God’s 7 most hated sins. When you have someone like the x Alaskan Gov., say some of the things she does, it just feeds the fury. She is not capable of giving deep intelligent comments and is unable to have an insiteful knowledgable discussion. She just stands and spurts it out. She has drug those kids all over the country and carries on like a 16 yr.old when someone makes a comment.I think her top priority is making money. I’m sure she is in Church every sunday, like most tea Parties,.
