Holocaust Remembrance Day

Yesterday, January 27 was International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which was designated by the United Nations as a day to remember and honor victims of the Holocaust and Nazi era and to develop educational programs designed to help prevent future genocides.

It’s brutally ironic (or is it?) that on this same day, President Trump rolled out his plan to slam the door shut on refugees to the United States. It’s shocking, really, for a nation that has built up its very character as a safe harbor for citizens of the world, fleeing persecution.

The very first European colonists in America, were in fact doing just that.

It’s shameful and wrong.
