We are the riches nation in the whole entire world. And we can’t make room for some kids and their patents so they can chase the American dream.
We are the greatest power unseen throughout history. Our influence unmatched and freedoms envied by every known democracy in this world. A nation of rule and law, with the largest deliberative ruling body can’t find room for these people. A fully self-correcting republic that is yet again ignoring its social contract for inspiring compassion, to be good that world is so desperate for.
Yet we do nothing. Our motto, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” Now go home or will take your kids from you.
It’s pure madness. It’s greedy. It’s insane. It’s racist.
Go home America. You are drunk.
I hope that this post find you loved and warmly embraced by your love-ones this Christmas morning. May your day be filled with moments filled with grace and mercy.
As I sit here writing, it’s been a couple of hours since my children have been awake. They are off to their corners of our home exploring with their new toys. My wife lays in bed after a long labor of preparing for today. I’m pretty mellow, thankful for another Christmas to be alive. I just finished sitting with my son, helping him put a toy together. I’m listening to to Bethel Music, praying, and thinking.
This year has been hard on our family. My schedule with work, challenges with growing kids, the strains of marriage as we change too as we get older. Life has just been difficult. And, I couldn’t be more happier. Thankful for four kids that are growing. I’m so thankful that my wife and kids are all healthy and happy.
I’m not sure what 2018 will be for us. I’ve decided to make it a growth year. I have a list of things that I would like to grow in. I have some goals to get some aws certifications. Maybe I will explore some front-end frameworks. I want to really grow in my relationship with the Lord and become more kind and gentle. I want to spend more time with my kids and wife.
