Borderlands: Resisting walls

Walls take many forms. They may be words, glances, or actions that distance us from others, or physical structures that protect us from the weather or the vulnerable from further harm.  But the walls we saw at the Arizona/Mexico border, on the Christian Peacemaker Teams borderlands delegation, were made of concrete, metal, or stone, or even from threats, meant to deprive people of their rights or shut out the tired, the poor, the “huddled masses yearning to breathe free”—as the message on the Statue of Liberty says at a port of entry in the Eastern United States.

Prayers for Peacemakers, 6 September 2017

Pray for the nearly 800,000 "dreamers", who based on the US presidential decision are in danger of losing legally provided permission to work, study and live in the USA and of deportation to countries they left as children.

Your classmate, your colleague, your neighbor, your friend, your partner, the person who helps you in the shop, the person who shakes your hand in the church, any one of them could be a "dreamer."
