The image above is of the Jewish passengers aboard the SS St. Louis in 1939. When they arrived in the Americas, only 28 passengers had "proper documentation" and were allowed entry. The other 908 were not allowed to disembark and the ship was turned away. Upon returning to Europe, some countries agreed to take a select number of passengers, but over 200 people on board were killed by the Nazis.
While Hitler's "final solution" was not yet in the works, antisemitic sentiment had spread to the point where European Jews no longer felt safe. These were refugees fleeing their homes in search of safe haven. What is important to note that the United States' treatment of these Jewish refugees sent a strong message to the rest of the world: “YOU ARE NOT WANTED AND WE WILL NOT COME TO YOUR AID.” Can you imagine how empowering this must have been for Hitler and the Nazi party, and how emboldened this must have made them feel in taking the first steps towards genocide?
When we learn about atrocities in history, it's easy to picture yourself as "one of the good guys" and envision yourself taking a stand. Posting on social media is not taking a stand. What would your activism and outrage look like if it didn't come with a "like" button? This is our test. I keep thinking of the quote, "We think well of our group in order to think well of ourselves." We have to face the fact that as Americans, we ARE complicit and we ARE capable of committing the same atrocities that the world has seen time and time again. Will we be smarter this time, and stop the cycle of repeating the same steps and expecting different results?
Call your representatives. Donate to organizations like RAICES and Immigrant Families Together. Donate your airline miles to reunite families and get immigration lawyers to the border. Donate to help pay refugees' bail. Teach your children about our history and current events using resources like Teaching Tolerance. You are not powerless.

✨Reflection... Hanged Man✨
The XII key of the Major Arcana speaks:
Only does the Hanged Man appear when we have to ask ourselves, was all that we did and said, for our higher purpose? Were we acting without full faith in our abilities? Were we reluctant to take the Leap? Not trusting all would unfold perfectly? When the Fool 0, stumbles off the edge, reluctant to face his destiny, his pack falls away, and he doesn’t have faith in his landing, he skips the step of the Magician I, and tumbles on, tangled in the Karmic Wheel X, gets weighed by Justice XI and is set to hang from the Tree of Life, to reflect. Did we need to get hung up, on the superficial, mundane, fantastical, hung up on our internal dialog that limits our potential. Bound and restricted, only to realize we can free ourselves at any moment? Allowing freedom to come with ease, with grace, with quiet moments and outward action. Surrender to your power, as an active participant in your life, there is no stopping you.
10 anos sem minha parte... ▫️
em seus manuscritos ele pedia ajuda, dizia que "eles" queriam vê-lo morto...eu ainda não sei o que de fato aconteceu, há tantos mistérios envolta de sua passagem. É nítido quem ele foi, o que ele fez. Mudou a realidade de milhares de pessoas, salvou incontáveis vidas através de suas atividades filantrópicas. Saiu de uma realidade humilde e sem perspectiva e incendiou o mundo...e continua a incendiar, os números estão ai, a nova geração de fãs e os que assim como eu, um dia foram arrebatados por você. Seja o que tiver acontecido, os que conspiraram contra você (conspiram ainda contra seu legado). Não irão rao conseguir! E o que foi feito não irá se comparar ao que te aguarda, Mike. Eterno em mim, você faz parte da minha história e constitui quem eu sou. Amo incondicionalmente 🖤
The scales of justice are weighing in every moment and just because in the natural it looks as if they've gotten away with it, the Lord wanted me to encourage you...they have not! It's one thing when man gives their "opinion" but another when God usurps His authority! Selah! #justice#righteous Jeremiah 17:10; Ecclesiastes 3:17
Our senior leadership has been traveling and meeting our local staff and those who benefit from #IIRRs many programs and initiatives. Here, our team participates in feedback from women farmers. Pictured on the left is Nancy, from our Ugandan field staff, right is Pamela, Acting Africa Regional Director, and in the middle, a new member we will officially announce soon!
In order to help streamline the wave of support for Curtis Flowers, his family and I are hosting a benefit drive for him next Friday, July 5th. As of now, it will be held at the Community House in Winona, MS. Donations are being accepted at this moment and will even continue after the drive. I encourage you to not only give big but to be present at this event if at all possible. Strength is shown in numbers and if I know my hometown like I do, we should be very POWERFUL that day. #FREECURTISFLOWERS
If you see this, share it. If you like it, leave a comment. Let's rally together and show that evil will not prevail!
*If you would like to donate anytime outside of the event, leave a comment and I will send you the information. Thanks and God bless.

Loved “What the Constitution Means to Me” @constitutionbwy on Broadway so much that I’m working on the sequel: “What the Geneva Conventions Mean to Me.” Featuring the true story of how I taught my son the Law of War to get him to behave better on the playground. #law#constitution#liberty#freedom#worklife
🙏🏾🙏🏾(disclaimer I don’t have the rights to this video) It’s a shame that a father and son felt the need to lie and fall under the Devil playground.
These young boys were -forced, - coerced - bamboozled, -emotionally attack, - violated their soul, - misjudge, - overruled, - misinformed, - flabbergasted, - and lied to.
This all happened because of EGO..... and lately it’s the most powerful word in the dictionary, including our planet.......I continue to pray for all of our brothers.
