Recently President Donald Trump signed an executive order ending his administration’s policy of separating migrant families…this action has left many confused and wondering if the recent Presidential order is a gift and a curse.
Unfortunately, an executive order that was executed prior to this one had allowed children to be separated from their families, making those children the true victims of this “cold war.” These children were separated from their loved ones, and then placed in harsh foster care environments to say the least.
For many of the oppressed immigrant families-the thought of these children struggling with the worry of how long will it take before being able to be reunited with their parents, (which can very well be a long time, depending on the circumstances), is heartbreaking. Although they are not technically considered orphans, most will understand their feelings.
One issue that the separated children may have to deal with is the fact that long-term separation may have caused is separation anxiety. This illness is extremely devastating for both parents and children. Separation anxiety refers to excessive fear or anxiety about separation from home or an attachment figure. In previous versions of the DSM, separation anxiety was only applied to people under the age of 18. The diagnosis is now categorized as an anxiety disorder that can be present at all stages of life.
For the record many, who do not agree with the first order, were equally disturbed and dumbfounded upon hearing about the signing of a second executive order as many wondered what was the purpose of this first. The overall question that has remained on the minds of watchers is-was the order meant to separate children from their parents? Did President Trump sign order to keep the children safe or to punish the parent? Now that the bill was overturned what will be the fate of the children when the parents have also been detained for trying to cross the border?
Atlas Mr. President “Oh, what a tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive.”
Most would agree second executive order, is not going to fix the damage which the prior order had placed upon the victims of bad immigration policy. Those who oppose both the bills overall will say “signing the order did not settle any minds,” and it will not change the negative attitude gear toward immigrants. If anything has happened by the President signing those bills it has separated this country even more, and people are now wondering what’s next.
I think we are all curious about how this will eventually play out, as the young people say, “we stay ready,” and as we all wait-we could indeed heed these words found in the Bible from Isaiah1:17 for any resemblance of hope and inspiration for a more positive outcome.

I recently saw kids huddled together last night around 7ish. I was about to get out my car when these two kids started walking toward my car. I was on business so i had to get out. By then they were right by my car passenger door. I got out and walked around my car and I watched them watch me. Then…They said, ma’am, we need $5 dollars to get on the train we short. I said let, me get back to you when I handle this business. I went in where I was going. I came out they ran back when they saw me get in my car and stood feet from the door watching me. Now to most that would be very intimidating and alarming and it was. But I kept my eyes on them as they watched me. Got out. Walked around the car gave them the $5 dollars. I told them “yall better not be out here on nothing bogus-” Do the right thing! The girl said, “yes ma’am,”.. and I heard her say as she got the money and walked away. “cool got it, Let’s go,”.. and they started walking toward the train…
Are you going to Rob Me? Conservative Headlines
Here’s the moral of the story…. As for me… When I encounter anyone asking for help.. if I can, I usually do. I don’t judge or worry about the true intention of the beggar. My own intention and heart is pure when I share whatever it is.. and, let the intention of the ill-intentioned fall where it may!.
I ALWAYS PAY ATTENTION TO SAFETY FIRST! Other than that for all you judgemental, nose upturned, memorized the bible but don’t, live it, ” holy rollers”, in the bible even Jesus asserted himself among the disadvantaged, the drunks, whores, thieves, etc etc to witness to them….isn’t that right? Well, why do you judge who and what you support.. in my story I thought that could’ve been, my kid out, there stranded needing $5 dollars to get home.. and thank GOD that someone came along who pushed past the intimidating factors to help him..or even your kid!! Come on, folks. Judge not or cast the first stone!!!! (LMJ)

Sterling, 37, was a father of five children, his sister Mignon Chambers told WAFB.Few details were known early Wednesday about Sterling’s life, and some circumstances of his death remained unclear. An anonymous 911 caller and an officer in the video said Sterling was carrying a gun and threatened someone before he was killed outside the Triple S Food Mart.
However, store owner Abdullah Muflahi told CNN that he never saw Sterling get into a confrontation, Tuesday night or otherwise.
According Journalist Sean King: We’ve seen a lot of police brutality these past few years, but seeing the police first tackle and manhandle Alton Sterling, mount him like a UFC fighter, then pull their guns out and shoot him repeatedly at point-blank range, killing him right there in front of his local convenience store where he was known as the “CD Man,” was equal parts devastating, infuriating, heartbreaking, maddening and overwhelming.
It’s sad that another family has to experience a murder of their loved one, and once again the reaction from police results in murder. Where are the body cameras, why did it take a shooting when Alton was ready tased? Just the same as in my son Tamir’s Rice case-we are still fighting for justice from the Federal Government, this is the ultimate tragedy. Why should we have to fight for human life? Period!
Samaria Rice, Mother of Tamir Rice
I have seen the video, and as a Civil Rights Leader-I have concerns, to the extent that I will assist the family in their fight. Freedom and human life must be first. Our lives must begin to matter. Up until this point I’m not sure young black lives have mattered!
More details to come…

Have you ever seen The U.S Blue Angels who are the US Navy’s Air expedition team? If you have you have seen the awesome power of McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet
This powerful unit cost US $29 Million per unit and the Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations and, since 1986, by the U.S. Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels. The F/A-18 has a top speed of Mach 1.8 (1,034 knots, 1,190 mph or 1,915 km/h at 40,000 ft. or 12,190 m). It can carry a wide variety of bombs and missiles, including air-to-air and air-to-ground, supplemented by the 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannon. It is powered by two General Electric F404 turbofan engines, which give the aircraft a high thrust-to-weight ratio.
The point of this narrative is that with all this technology there is one vital element that is required to be effective. A Pilot who sits behind the controls. This unit would be vulnerable without a human being-also this unit would spiral out of control and crash.
So similarly, you can posse every known gift imaginable but if you don’t allow God to guide you in using those gifts, then they are useless. More seriously you may spiral out of control and crash. As the captain of your ship, the pilot of your air craft is God. (don’t listen to the bumper stickers that say God is my Co-pilot) they are so wrong.
Imagine if Moses and Aron didn’t go into Egypt and tell Pharaoh to let my people go. Sure they were in fear but they decided to listen and follow the journey that God had prompted for them, yet as a result of their obedience The Nation of Israel benefited, Moses grow to become the leader of a new nation.
God desires the same for you, understand it will not be comfortable but if you familiarize yourself with God and then set sail into the “Airways of life.” You will find a journey that is filled with wonder and amazement. On this journey you’ll leave behind old attitudes, old relationships, old sins, and old ways of thinking. On this journey to obedience you will obtain technical gifts from God that you have never imagined or even realized,
As a favorite song of mine says-Give me the Sky and I’ll give you heaven. As long as you believe the best is yet to come.
