I often wonder about the sorrowing mothers and fathers who lost their sons. How hard it is to lose a child!
God warned Joseph in a dream to take the child and his mother and flee to Egypt - they became refugees fleeing for their lives. I am glad there was no wall to keep them from entering Egypt. Once there, Joseph must have looked for work and felt rather helpless not knowing the language. Perhaps the gifts of the Magi allowed them to find a humble dwelling and buy food during the first part of their stay in Egypt.
I am so concerned with what we are doing to those seeking refuge in the United States plus what we are doing to so many good Hispanics just because they have not had the money nor time to seek to be citizens. Many have received their work permits, but now we are arresting and deporting families who have been living and working peacefully here for years. It is all so wrong.
