Hateful comments about immigrants
Make me marvel at the person’s audacity
Their ignorance and fear
Spurring them on making their minds limp
Differences make a country stronger not weak
As long as we try to get along
Accept and embrace differences
We can all prosper and be happy

  2. yes some don't but the biggest percentage are grateful as are most of our ancestors who came here to Canada and the US as immigrants

  3. Amen to that - it could be so simple..makes you wonder why not really..beautifully penned Sheilagh and a reflection of your glowing heart...

  4. Big statement! If only people could learn to live together, what a wonderful world this would be. Sadly all too often the reality is not like that. Good thought!

  5. Personal preferences can get out of hand leading to unfounded prejudices. It just needs a spark to trigger it off!
