The day we used tear

The United States is
composed of 329 million peo-
ple spread over 3.8 million
square miles. In population
and landmass, it’s a pretty
big place. But those are not
the only criteria that matter.
Morality matters, too. And
on Sunday, by that measure
at least, this country seemed
rather small. That, of course,
was the day we used tear gas
against children. Leonard Pitts
It began at a border
crossing in San Diego, when
a group of Central American refugees who had been
packed into what the Los Angeles Times described as
a tent city that “smells strongly of sewage” while they
waited to apply for asylum, rushed the border. The
Times reported that “a small group of men and teenage
boys” reached a hole in the border fence, where some
threw rocks, striking Border Patrol agents, none of
whom was seriously injured.
The Border Patrol responded by lobbing tear gas
into Mexico. As the news filled with images of poor
people, some of them children, some of them barefoot,
some of them in diapers, scampering to escape the
stinging, choking clouds, some of us were ecstatic.

existing in the vicinity. It’s why
spiritual protection is just as
important for you as a jacket or
umbrella when it’s cold out.
