It's Cinco de Mayo. Isn't it time to pass the "Dream Act" ?
"There's still plenty of unfinished business, including fixing our broken immigration system. It's long past the time that we unleash the promise of all our young people and make the DREAM Act a reality." (President Obama)
We can ALL win when we dream. We all lose when we demonize each other instead of accepting reality as it is and moving from there to find common ground and good solutions.
And, sometimes, the right thing to do runs counter to our accepted wisdom. The question we should be asking is this: What is our shared vision for America?
How do we want to feel, as individuals and as a larger community? Let’s put our venom and polarizing politics away and move forward, using a set of common needs and desires and find out what makes the most sense.
The DREAM Act is an opportunity to step up and talk to each other with mutual respect. No matter your position, there is more to be gained by listening.
No one has ever failed by dreaming.
