It goes without saying how inhumane the policy of taking children from their families is, but what bothers me as much, and something that needs to be discussed, are the guards who are doing the separating.
People who are our neighbors are carrying out such a reprehensible policy. Growing up and reading about the Nazis I often wondered about how many people were involved in all the killing, in all the horrors.
People saying that they were just following orders and just doing their jobs and going back to their families with no apparent sense of conscience. How are we no different?
At what point do we say to ourselves, "I just can't do this, I can't be a part of this."
How do our neighbors look at us, how do we look at them, when we know that horror happens when good people blindly follow orders and put their morals on hold. We are no different.
This is not “The Sound of Music.” We are collectively responsible. We can't just "do our jobs" and we all have to stop it.
