I was encouraged to read two recent arrests stirred protests over Arizona’s immigration law, glad to know there are civil rights organizations like Corazón de Tucson to rally outside the police department, activists like Alcaraz Ochoa willing to crawl under a Border Patrol vehicle to block them from driving away when the answers they gave him about why they were arresting Rene Meza didn’t satisfy him. It makes me remember I can’t blame all Arizonans for their racist legislation. It reminds me there are people there who didn’t want these laws in place, people who must be as appalled and embarrassed now as I was when our country elected Bush. It makes me remember to have hope.
Nicely said. I agree
The tragedy is there are very few of those. Across the globe.
I too vented my despair in a post on the loss of hope in a post last month!
Thank you, Donald! And thanks for stopping by, too. :)
I read that post, Madhu. (I don’t always get to all of yours because you are so prolific, but that was one I managed to read. Though I am trying to stay more current these days!)
I actually thought of this as a cause for hope, though, rather than a loss of hope. ;-)
I know you did….the comment was just more of my pessimistic rant :-)
And I liked that you let yourself rant, actually.
