I am Canadian and I’m disheartened and disgusted at what’s been going on at US borders. You don’t have to be American to feel empathy for what is going on there.
#WATWB is about posting good things happening in the world. Sadly, besides the other dangers that tRump (I’m sorry, I cannot capitalize his name) is posing to the US and the world, this situation is atrocious and is against Human Rights – snatching children at the borders.
Thank you to this lawyer, Michael Avenatti, who is quickly becoming the newest hero in America by offering his pro bono services to assist these poor people being treated as insignificant and criminals, just fleeing for their lives looking for sanctuary. And thanks to Avenatti, so many other lawyers are joining the action. That is what America is about!

Every month a group of bloggers post something inspirational on the last Friday of every month, to deflect negativity and focus on something positive. I know this border situation is appalling to most people, but it is a reality that needs to continue to shine in the forefront of the media and so I’m sharing today, highlighting that there are many good citizens rising up and doing their part to help for justice.
Your hosts for the month are: Simon FalkMary J. Giese Shilpa Garg Damyanti Biswas and Dan Antion.
