Imagine how your life would be without the internet. Without a phone. Without TV. Without electricity. You are poor. There is no food. Soldiers and civilians are killing each other, and you and your family are caught in the crossfire. They come to rape the women and girls. AK-47’s are pointed at your sons and they are forced to decide to join in the raping and killing or die right where they stand. You and your family are going to die – or worse – it’s just a matter of time. You pray for help. You scream for help. Help is not coming.
You only have one chance: Get the hell out. You have to leave the country or die trying.
Now imagine that same story multiplied hundreds of thousands of times – this year alone – and you have a tiny sense of what’s going on in Libya, Syria, Afghanistan and elsewhere. These people would be helpless, these people would be hopeless, but for the kindness of strangers. The kindness Italy, the kindness of France, the kindness of Germany, the kindness of many other countries. But not the kindness of America.
We don’t want those people to come over here. We’d rather let them die. Plain and simple. This is the America we live in. Don’t take my word for it. Read the comments on this post, or the comments on any site posting stories similar to this one.
This is Donald Trump’s America. God help us.
