family separation

the last leaf


 
666+186 Day LIII: the final leaf, the last of the final 9 leaves that end a journey that began on October 22nd last year. I have decided to keep the dates together with the marks from each day that indicate the number of leaves drawn that day, as part of the final piece. Look for the completed work tomorrow. Posting this on Canada’s Family Day is an opportunity to remember the separated children and look forward to the day when those responsible will be held accountable. #families belong together.
 

20 new leaves, an executive order and two heroes


 
666+132…in progress – Day L with 20 new leaves on a day that gives hope to the children separated from their parents at the US border with the signing of an Executive Order by President Biden establishing an interagency task force for their reunification. His strong words today, including “ work to undo the moral and national shame of the previous administration,” are very welcome.
 

 

Today we also remember two heroes, Captain Sir Tom Moore and Capital Police Office Brian Sicknick, may they both rest in peace.
 

 

home stretch


 
666+80…entering the home stretch, with the hope that home is coming soon for the children so cruelly separated from their parents at the US border by the criminal administration that in three days will be relegated to the dustbin of history.
 
How reassuring to learn from the interview between Jacob Soboroff and Alicia Menendez on MSNBC in which Ron Klain the Chief of Staff to President-elect Biden states that in the first 10 days he will…
 
“…fulfill his promises to restore dignity to our immigration system and our border policies, and start the difficult but critical work of reuniting families separated at the border.”
 
Watch the interview at @jacobsoboroff and make sure to read his book “Separated.”
