This morning before work, I joined a group of people at the International Trade Center who were speaking out against separating immigrant families at the border. It was already 80F when I left the house at 7:30. It added two miles to my morning walk to join in. I thought about how far these families have walked in desperate hope only to meet such cruelty. What was a little discomfort and arriving at the office a bit red in the face and damp?

Not even for a blink of Siva’s eye will this Dome be here.
I would have been six. I remember my mother weeping and explaining to me why.
On the way to work.
