President Trump condemned the chemical warfare attack in Syria, bemoaning the deaths of innocent children and babies. I was glad to hear his words because I feel the same way. This was an outrage, a calculated attack for political reasons hiding under a thin disguise of religion that did not seek to shield its effects in any way from the innocent. It’s an expression of extremism that is a demonic force in the world today. I’m glad my President took a stand.
I wish he would say the same thing about fast-tracking deportation orders for women and children back to areas torn by gang violence in Central America, especially in view of the role the United States played in bringing about the situation so many of these countries face.
Oh, wait, how could I be so insensitive. Political embarrassment carries an unbearably high price.
