Like a scene from a movie, this past week’s events are utterly unreal.  While Flint still does not have clean water, our globe is warming, and children cannot afford a carton of milk at school– our priorities couldn’t be farther off our nation’s budget.  It is difficult to realize the length of what is at stake, for the very idea of a wall separating our land and another is a tale as old as the Berlin Wall and the Great Wall of China.

One must bring to question the motives behind this wall.  It’s far off the scheme of logic to do so; is it a matter of maintaining Trump’s ego?  Worse yet, to make an unforgettable impression upon the United States.  Our land of the free is at stake.
