day 71

If any of your kin fall into difficulty and become dependent on you, you shall support them; they shall live with you as though resident aliens.  Leviticus 25:35

if the family from
         Aleppo
   are my cousins;
if the immigrant
         mom
   working 3 jobs
   is my sister;
if the Muslim
         teenager
   is my son;
if the hungry
         girl
   is my daughter,
how
can i turn
   my back on
any
     (or all)
of them?
