White chocolate

When I was in third grade (or so), there was a kid in our class who was from Germany and I’m pretty sure he was with us for only a year. I don’t remember his name, but I remember that his mom insisted that everyone in his class be invited to his bday party, which included moi.

And then! I remember this kinda oddness – there was a boys and girls separation. I don’t know that anyone cared, but it was odd. Why invite us all only to separate us?! Anyway, I think the bozos played soccer or something while we were introduced to the most delicious sweet on the planet: white chocolate. And we played a game and there was a block of chocolate. And a knife. And it was incredibly awesome.

And I don’t even want to hear it. Because it is so yums; it’s amazing.

Anyway, after dreaming of that day for 30+ years, I decided to use ye olde google to see where it could lead me, and I discovered this immediately. And after wondering all this time if I really had dreamed the whole thing, I feel I’ve been verified.

Sleep in safety. Sleep without stress. Sleep without worry. Things children all over the world should be able to do. But those kids who have set foot on this soil after bearing untold abuses and have asked for asylum from us—literally begged us for help, throwing themselves on our mercy—have been tossed aside and, I imagine, can’t sleep. . . . They’ve been treated not only like they’ve done something wrong (they haven’t), but treated in a way we don’t—or shouldn’t—treat any child in this country. We don’t put children in cages. We don’t make children sleep on floors. We don’t separate them from their families. In fact, when these things happen to children, we usually file criminal charges against the perpetrators. This must stop. . . . #stopthemadness #reunitefamilies #asylumseekers #choosekindness #hurryupmueller
My love. She loves to sleep on the floor. I swear: she has a bed. We have several. Couches too! But I get to see her like this every night and we both get to feel so safe . . . On the other hand, there are those who can’t feel safe at night bc of our country’s ridiculous policy. The #GOP has decided that the world’s current horrors weren’t enough that they needed to up the ante and add their own voice to the unending madness. And they did . . . Separating asylum-seeking mothers and fathers from their children. That’s the #GOPlegacy. Does it get more horrific?! People fleeing horrendous abuses, throwing themselves on our mercy and, instead of kindness, we shower them with incivility, treating them as criminals, stealing their children and tossing them in detention. Where is your soul, #GOP?! . . . #resist #impeachmentyesterday #impeachmentnow #bluewave #votethemout #noexcuse
