It’s hard for me to understand how some people can call themselves Christians and still speak of deporting families back to the country that they ran away from. People don’t come here because they’re bored of their lives and need a change. They come here because they are desperate. Their lives may be threatened. When your children are at risk of starving to death and sleeping in dirt you do anything to change their situation. If you wouldn’t, then you’re a shit parent. You can sit there and say how you would follow the rules and do it thw right way until your face turns blue, but truth is you don’t know until you’re in the situation. All I see are ignorant people that label themselves Americans and put themselves on pedestals just because they are born here. An illegal immigrant working 3 jobs to support their family is a better American than a citizen sitting on their ass being supported by their spouse or parent. You call yourselves Christians while you sit behind keyboards and say “deport them all! They’re lazy and cost us money!!” Call yourselves Christians and turn away a family that needs help. What kind of Christian would send a family back to die when they could help them? Even if it costs a few dollars per year of your tax money? Like Ghandi said “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” He is true. Many Christians are just Christians when it’s convenient for them. When they go to their mega church with its rec center and restaurants to hang out with other fake Christians. Practice the core principles of Christianity before calling yourself a Christian. Love one another. Love others as we love ourselves. Forgive not just once but many times without limit.
“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
Everything about this is great and correct and I hope (am hopeful) that people will take this to heart instead of mindlessly reblogging and going about your day

Give this man an Oscar
He smiled understandingly — much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced — or seemed to face — the whole external world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an…
