Letter: A brighter tomorrow

Sitting and wondering,

Left with no choice

Than to make that move,

That decisive move, now!

With all the will-power,

I mustered the courage

The courage to step out

In search of another way.

Each step, a step of hope,

Each stop, but rest enough,

Each morsel, strength for the journey

Toward hope, yet unborn.

Through rain and sunshine,

High tides and low,

Slipping and sliding

Yet, onward we go.

Chaos and confusion,

Pushing and shoving,

One aim only – pushed us —

Onward, to find a brighter tomorrow.

My hope! My child!

My promise! My possibility!

Don’t tear us apart now!

For deep in our hearts,

We cling to each other

Believing that here on this soil

We will find a brighter tomorrow.

– Rev. Miranda Ophelia Daley Sutherland, in solidarity with the parents and children at the U.S. border
