I thought I could compose this newsletter and not touch on the
obvious issue in my country and in so many of your countries
as well.

In this country the topic is so politically charged I'm sure I will
offend some of you no matter what I say!

First of all this is a VERY personal issue for me. My Father's
family seem to have come from Russia, Germany, The Iberian
Peninsula, India, and surprisingly Ireland/Scotland.

My Mother's family are clearly from Russia and Ukraine.
My  Grandfather, for whom Charlie is named, came when he was
4 years old. They trekked across Russia to Antwerp, Belgium.
My grandfather got sick and the family (my great grandparents and my Grandfather's older brother and two sisters)was afraid they would all be turned away at Ellis Island because my grandfather was sick. DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR???
He was left with friends in Belgium to board a ship later in the
month with them.

They had been persecuted in Russia in their little Shtetl (village).
The Cossacks would ride through and plunder everything; the
women, the crops and their homes.
They left because they knew if they stayed they were all in danger. They risked it all to get here. First in an Ox Cart,
sometimes walking and then by boats on the river.

I still have 3 prized possessions; Hand made wood bowls they
brought with them from Russia, a Candelabra to light candles
on Shabbos (Sabbath) and a large cast iron pot my great grand
parents cooked in on an open fire.
So when we talk about immigrants I feel with every fiber of my
being the anger that I know they would feel if they could hear
this crazy rhetoric now.

My Ancestors asked for asylum and had relatives here ready to
help them. They were granted asylum and my grandfather
joined them months later. He often talked about his feelings
when he first saw Lady Liberty in NY Harbor. He knew
when he saw her he would be reunited with his mother and father.
He taught me the Emma Lazarus poem and proudly took me
to see her. I cry when I think of this 4 year old watching his
parents leave him in a strange country while he was sick.
It is unfathomable.

Yet now we have an even worse situation. Children who did not
have to be separated from their parents, as my grandfather had
to, are being taken and do not know if they will ever see their
parents again.

Maria Shriver, in her Sunday Paper, talked about her brother's
belief that we are in a battle for the heart and soul of the US.
I agree and I have no intention of allowing this situation to keep
children from their parents. I am speaking up, Marching and donating so that our government can hear our voices and
footsteps following behind them!! I do this in honor of
my grandfather and my great grandparents who asked
for asylum and received it!

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning
to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I Lift my lamp beside the golden door"
Emma Lazarus, Colossus.
