Bound By Hope of a Common Future

We’re living in a world where each of us fits the truth into our own box of understanding. In other words, we’ve been lied to so much that we are skeptical of what we hear anew. Let me give you an example. Today in America, when you hear the word “immigrant” does its image turn into a politically colored label in your mind? If not, then you truly are an American saint. For all the rest of us, the idea of immigrants coming to America has been so roughed over by the tracks of political bulldozers these past few years that it’s just not the same as it was.
