How Trump’s Family Separation Traumatized Children

I do not know how much more I can take.  These reports are giving me nightmares, yet how much worse is it for the families and the children?  Today my heart is heavy and I have cried more than I want to admit.  I feel helpless to help.  I just read how when a surge of children came to our border with a real President in charge money was spent helping them.  Facilities were quickly set up and got help from the communities.  Children were treated like family, they had people speaking their language helping them, they had classes, communities set up astro turf soccer areas.  There were on site mobile medical teams and counselors to help the children and families.  That is what the wealthiest nation on earth, the one its people keep saying is #1, does.  Well did back then.  Today it is a different nation bankrupt of heart, empathy, and decency.   Today the nations leaders see worth only in terms of skin color and wealth.  To be brown, black , or poor is to be not human in the US today.  I am tired.  I do not understand why these avengers with assault weapons do not want to free the children but instead want to kill people who look like them.   If I had the power, the money, I would try to save all of them.   All I can do today is share the information, their stories in the hope it helps them.  Tired hugs
