I find it quite disheartening to see roughly half a nation have no empathy for those who are in dire need. Now let me first say that if you are not of Indigenous descent, then you are also an immigrant. That being said, that leaves about 95% of us being immigrants. However, in this landscape you would never know it. So if you’re one of the super-entitled then I guess you are against more people coming to your lands. First of all, remember — you own nothing! We are all just renting for a short while, then we kick the bucket just like everyone else. In the meantime, a little compassion for our brothers and sisters would be a good start for a brainwashed nation hell-bent on keeping others out.

In the current environment we see our (so-called) leaders continue to push fear so they can keep the masses brainwashed. I actually find it quite fascinating how easily persuaded and easily taken over our little tiny human minds are. We are also a nation of phone zombies. Social media outlets now own roughly half the minds in this country. Quite easily, I might add. Just to set the record straight. I want to add that immigrants don’t come here for a better life. They come here to get away from their miserable thug-filled countries. If they had their way, they would never leave their countries to begin with. You know these people don’t want to trek halfway across the planet just to end up in a country that would rather reject them.

So I do have a question for all of you out there that take issue with immigrants coming to this country. Are you of Indigenous descent? If not, then you are also an immigrant. So if you’re against immigrants coming over, then maybe you should leave also. Sounds fair to me. In the meantime, try a little love, compassion and empathy for others. You might just realize how good it makes you feel. And please! Stop this ongoing entitlement that’s controlling your mind and stealing your soul. God bless all countries, no exceptions Be good, do good.
