No Ban No Wall
I went to a rally in SF today and listened to really moving speeches.
- •I'm an immigrant and it hurts to watch my brown brothers and sisters be denied safety and freedom based on religion or country of origin.
- •I didn't take many photos, but there were so many great signs of inclusion and love.
- •I started to cry when one speaker started to sing This Land is Your Land
- •This land is your land,
- •this land is my land
- •From California to the New York Island
- •From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters
- •This land was made for you and me.
- •I don't know... it just transported me to learning this song as a kid.
- •I didn't understand what it REALLY meant until this moment.
- •I must have been 7 or 8. I wasn't a citizen then but learning the American anthems made me feel American.
- •I want that for every refugee or immigrant that comes here for a better life.
- •I want them to feel like they belong. Because they do.
- •I want the world to know that there are people in this country that still believe in the words engraved on the Statue of Liberty.
