When we chose an Immigration theme for January, we couldn't have imagined just how pressing the issue of discussing and treating immigrants as people would become by the month's end. As is the case with most Americans, none of us have to travel far up our family tree to reach relatives who make the decision to come to this country because of the opportunities that it provided.

No color, no religion, no sexual orientation, nor no gender deserves more respect than any other. We hope that as you read these stories, you take a moment to remember that each person suddenly denied entry to the United States has their own moving story that they would love to share.

We have many topics to cover and do want to change our focus each month, but we will continue to share immigration stories as we know this issue deserves continuing coverage. Please keep telling us your stories so we may share them.

Please consider donating towards legal fees for people suddenly in limbo and at risk or consider donating household goods to assist in the resettlement of refugee families. Most importantly, please speak out and help others in whatever way you can.

With love,
Susanne, Lorraine and Laura
