You have either heard about or saw the picture of the father and daughter who drowned only inches from safety. I do not have the words to express what I feel. Everyone has an opinion. The political spin is in overdrive.

The one poignant fact is that they were seeking asylum legally as U.S. law currently requires.

Let the sink in because it is important.

As I have no words to express myself I  will share this with you:

Remember that there is only ONE person to blame for this. He is Donald Trump. Let this image sear in your brain so you remember it when you cast your vote in 2020.

  1. If you lived here, you’d know that at least 5 have drowned in the local aquaceas lately. Is that DJT’s fault, too?
