Those of you who know me know that I don't always understand things, especially political. That having been said I will go on record with who I Proudly voted for, and that was our now President Trump. I have only now had a question come up in my little pea brain after listening to a conversation between a couple of family members. The topic of the conversation was about the wall between us and Mexico. What has come to my mind is this: How similar is this wall that is going to be built between us and Mexico to the Berlin Wall? Have people forgotten the lives risked and lost when people tried to escape that wall?
The reason this is troubling me is that while living I Mainz, Germany while my husband was stationed there I had the pleasure of being introduced to a lady that had come from behind that awful wall. The day she made it out she was pregnant and accompanied by both parents and her husband. She and her mother made it out. Her Dad and husband were shot to death in the attempt for a better life. For the life of me I cannot remember her name. I met her through my husband's 1st Sgt. who later married her and brought her and her 15 year old son home to Indianapolis. I pray they have had a wonderful life here.
The memory of her personal story has brought fear into my heart for any possible lost lives and shame I see over this new wall and the fact that anything resembling the Berlin Wall on our soil. That is the only thing I question concerning this presidency.
