#FamiliesBelongTogether. There are few things in life that bring me more joy than being an aunt to my nieces and nephews. When I’m with them, time slows down. Auntieland is like another, kinder world. And when I’m away from them, I miss them in the deep, heart-aching sort of way. I’m not a mother now, and I’m not sure if I’ll be one in the future, but family means everything to me. And that’s why I’m so disturbed by the fact that over 2,000 children have been separated from their families in the past six weeks. This is not who we are. This is happening to people who are attempting to enter the country at ports of entry and in between. We must urge Congress and the President to end this cruel policy of tearing apart immigrant families. This has been keeping me up at night and I had to do something about it. Today, I donated to the @aclu_nationwide to continue their work on this cause. I will be in touch with my elected officials. Let’s continue to speak out loud and clear that this is wrong and we won’t tolerate it. Thanks for the inspiration for this post, @brooke.froelich
