Our voices are being heard, sometimes we have to shout to see the evidence of that; but stay patient you are a force.

I believe our tweets and blogs may be the greatest factor of raising awareness.  We can not count on the national or even world media to accurately inform us.  I am also not so naive to believe everything from a tweet or blog.   But usually where there is a lot of smoke, there is a fire.  Keep digging to find the truth.

We are beginning to see a bit more news coverage from the major networks on the Southern border immigration issue here in the U.S.   I believe action from our government and president is in part due to the public outcry.  A lot of that comes from right here on what we write and share with our followers.   They also know we vote!

This morning our local St. Louis news gave immigration a stunning 2 minutes, with video.   Not a big deal you say?  That’s up by about  one-and-a-half minutes.  Will be interesting to see what the national TV will release.  Hopefully I haven’t missed already.

My point is we can make a difference.   I know the stance on illegal immigration is mixed even split, but if we remain active our government will, sooner or later respond.   It may not go the way you or I want it in the end, but stay vocal…..this is our country.   We are the voice of awareness.


  1. Arlin, again you speak the word that are in my heart! We must continue to put our voices out there and if this is the only way to do it, then so be it. Believe me, they have people that watch the bloggers to see what they are saying! And I agree with larryedwardsjr77 when he says that silence is approval. I would add that silence is an action. So you can choose or not choose. Either way, you are choosing! Only the one that doesn’t choose doesn’t realize that his complacency is a choice against himself.

    Thank you, Arlin, for writing on the topics that are at the forefront of the news and taking the words that are in my heart that I may not be able to put into words.

    God bless you, my friend!


  2. You are absolutely right. If we stay silent then we are approving the actions or lack of action the government takes. Only by speaking up and sharing can we make a difference. Every voice added to the cause brings power to the people and attention to what we want done.
