I am truly outraged by The Trump Administration’s “zero tolerance” policy of separating children from their parents. As much as I believe in the rule of law, what we are witnessing in southern US Border States is nothing short of a humanitarian crisis. Every mother who has ever nursed a baby understands the pain and the horror of ripping a child from his or her mother’s breast.
Separating families is immoral, inhumane, and indefensible. This practice is a cruel and heartless. It is unimaginable that anyone would use these babies as political bargaining chips. Children are being caged like animals. This is an indictment on this administration and the current Congress; they have become complicit in facilitating this moral crisis on our nation’s soil. If we as Americans don’t stand up and speak out against this atrocity, it is an indictment on the entire nation.
I urge the faith community to come out of the shadows on this one. For far too long, us believers have kept quiet when we knew we should have spoken up. I urge all faith leaders, and anyone who has a moral center to join me in fasting and prayer for these children, to culminate in a day of action on June 30, 2018. This is not the time to keep silent.
I took the pledge to not take money from the oil and gas industry, because I believe Americans deserve public servants who will put them first and make decisions that are in the best interest of the people and not big money interests.
Today, students at Lakota West participated in the school walk out by hosting a school sanctioned time of silence to honor victims of the latest mass school shooting. Our students understand that gun violence is serious, and given the several recent school shootings, many students say they fear for their lives. They are leaders in a movement to put an end to school shootings. Like Dr. Vanessa Enoch, students across the US are advocating for taking assault riffles out of the hands of civilians. The Bible says “the children will lead them”. We cannot ignore the voices of our young people. Many Lakota West High School students and students throughout District 8 will be old enough to vote this year, and most of them will be able to vote by the next presidential election. If we don’t hear them now, we will hear their vote in November 2020. It is time for change!
Join us in the Motivate the 8th Campaign! We can make history by putting a Woman in the US Congress to represent the 8th District in Ohio.
The Committee to Elect Enoch is working diligently to Motivate the 8th District in Ohio. It’s time for growth, development, and progress in the 8th District of Ohio. The current administration wants to turn back the clock, and return to days and times of old. We are calling on the 8th District in Ohio to vote for progress on Tuesday, November 6th, 2018. A Vote for Enoch for Congress is a Vote for Progress!
We have the opportunity to put a Woman in Office in the 8th Congressional District in Ohio for the first time in history. If you live in any of these counties, we are asking you to go and register to vote so that you can be part of history: Butler County, Clark County, Darke County, Mercer County, Miami County, and Preble County
