June 20, 2018 - Dear Editor: After the past month of watching our government become out of control, I find myself in an outrage with the policies that have been enacted that are requiring the Department of Homeland Security to take babies away from their parents. I have worked in the Behavioral Health Care field since 1989 and although I have been brought to tears by some of the people I have counseled, this past month has brought me to the point of tears every day.
1) If you don’t learn about the history of Authoritarian governments, then you will be doomed to repeat is again: Hitler and the Nazi’s: I was just following orders….Nuremberg.
2) Water seeks its own level; so look into the White House and see who is surrounding the President.
3). People show their true colors, unintentionally, Pay Attention! I was called a liberal in the past week due to making my feelings known about the babies been taken from their families.
For those of you who know me, you are probably laughing. If that makes me a liberal then so be it….I don’t feel I need to defend myself for caring about other humans. It is time for us to follow our conscious and do what is right and prudent, for all of the people of the world. I have made my calls to DHS, the National Child Abuse Hotline (I am a mandated reporter) and have written several times to my Congressman. Please make your views known also. May God forgive us for the atrocities being perpetrated on our fellow human beings.Pam Hawkins
