"They are not simply immigrants or undocumented or illegals or refugees.
They are people.
They are grandparents, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons.
They are teachers, cooks, doctors, professors, farm workers, scientists, house builders, truck drivers, writers, artists.
They are humans.
And they matter.
Their hopes and dreams and needs matter.
Their love for their families matters.
Their futures matter.
There's enough room for everyone in this world. We can do better than this. We MUST do better than this.
Let's feed the hungry and shelter the homeless and love the unloved and rescue the lost and help the hopeless and welcome the refugee and asylum seeker.
Let's defend the downtrodden and the oppressed and the rejected.
Let's be the light in this dark and desperate world.
Let's create a peaceful world by being peaceful humans.
History has shown that we cannot kill our way to peace. We cannot create peace by declaring humans illegal. We cannot create peace by turning a blind eye to 'other' humans' suffering.
There are no other humans.
There is only us.
And we're all in this together.
The only path to peace is peace."
