Unalienable Rights

December 19, 2018

‘In this world,

hate never yet dispelled hate.

Only love dispels hate.

This is the law,

ancient and inexhaustible.’



‘Seek justice,

encourage the oppressed.

Defend the cause of the fatherless,

plead the case of the widow.’

-Isaiah 1:17-18


‘Theirs was the fullness of heaven and earth;

the more that they gave to others, the more they had.’



‘Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.’

-Mark Twain


‘Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

II Corinthians 1:17

Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all (wo)men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness —that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

“As above, so below; as below, so above.”

Rosaries confiscated from undocumented migrants by US border patrol agents.

“Tom Kiefer was a Customs and Border Protection janitor for almost four years before he took a good look inside the trash. Every day at work—at the C.B.P. processing center in Ajo, Arizona, less than fifty miles from the border with Mexico—he would throw away bags full of items confiscated from undocumented migrants apprehended in the desert. One day in 2007, he was rummaging through these bags looking for packaged food, which he’d received permission to donate to a local pantry. In the process, he also noticed toothbrushes, rosaries, pocket Bibles, water bottles, keys, shoelaces, razors, mix CDs, condoms, contraceptive pills, sunglasses, keys: a vibrant, startling testament to the lives of those who had been detained or deported. Without telling anyone, Kiefer began collecting the items, stashing them in sorted piles in the garages of friends. “I didn’t know what I was going to do,” he told me recently. “But I knew there was something to be done.”
