I signed this over the summer, after ND posted it on another forum. I have read all the Human Rights Watch documentation related to this atrocious story, and would urge anyone concerned with the treatment of undocumented children in North America to sign it as well.
May all children being be liberated from suffering.
May all children be kept safe from harm.
May all children proper decent education.
May all children be raised in loving and supportive environments.

Made from 100% recycled karmaThe Heart Drive Word PressMud to Lotus"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy
