It is no secret that the Trump Administration has been responsible for the separation of thousands of families at the US-Mexico border. In fact, because of the huge outrage following the Zero-Tolerance policy of the administration, you may have been one of the people whose hearts have been touched by the drama unfolding everyday at the border. Have you donated to an organization helping these undocumented immigrants and their children in order to be reunited? You are definitely not alone.
Still, there is anotehr side to the story. You do not have to be a participant of any kind in this entire mess to “bear witness” to the tragedies that are unfolding daily. Of course, just how much of the scenes that you actually want to witness is entirely dependent on you. At a moment’s notice, you can choose to just turn a blind eye to what is happening if it happens to hit a sensitive chord inside of you.
Since outrage erupted over the Trump administration’s practice of separating families at the border, you’ve probably made a decision about how much attention you’ll devote to the humanitarian crisis.
