Today across our country temperatures will reach extremely high levels. It will be dangerous to be out under the blazing sun. Within the hours from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. we will see a rise from 68 to 84 (F) degrees.
During those same hours, thousands of people across the country will gather to protest the government’s treatment of immigrant families- especially children who have come to our southern border seeking asylum, albeit illegally. “Temperatures” are sure to rise in those gatherings as well.
For those of us who are not able or choose not to join the crowds, I can only hope that cool heads prevail and no further heartache is released within our borders. Ours will be the responsibility of praying for peace and a swift, comprehensive solution to this tragedy.
May peace reign in our hearts since as one nation we are called to that peace!
