OUR HUDDLED MASSES: It's been an emotional past couple weeks. (📸: @rynkwng)
“Last night my family and I spent the evening enjoying the beautiful weather as we walked along Alki Beach,” reader Ryan Kang wrote on Instagram. “Our evening ended at Seattle’s mini Statue of Liberty, just as the sun was setting. I actually forgot this statue was there, and was hit with a bunch of emotions upon seeing it again.”
The statue made Ryan think of what’s been happening at the U.S. border and points of entry, which we bet a lot of you have been thinking about too. Migrant parents who’ve crossed the border unlawfully had been getting separated for weeks until President Trump signed an order last Wednesday saying they should be kept together. But thousands of kids will remain separated from their parents, The New York Times reported.
“You don’t have to be a parent to have empathy for those families, literally being torn apart,” Ryan wrote. “You do not have to be a part of a political party to differentiate right and wrong. You just have to be human.“
