from Noon to 1PM today we walked silently around the ICE building. The second Thursday of each month, the Buddhist Peace Fellowship of Portland and the Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice host a silent walk to witness to ICE unjust policies and to practice compassion for all. Today about 200 persons showed up with signs and t-shirts. I will let the photos speak for themselves. I walked saying quietly- Love, Peace and Compassion with each step I took around the ICE building. May it be so for the children separated from their parents! And may the hearts of our government be filled with compassion to change these inhumane practices.
My life has been about crossing borders and cultures and building bridges across the boundaries that normally divide. Have you crossed any borders in your life?
