Immigrant youths need protection! Neither the Secure & Succeed Act nor the Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act addresses the current crisis.
As details around yesterday's tragic school shooting in Florida begin to emerge, one thing remains crystal clear: schools should be peaceful environments, free from the threat of gun violence.
When will Congress act to protect our nation's children from this epidemic?
This year, we've experienced an average of one school shooting every 60 hours in America, more than double the number of school shootings recorded in any of the previous three years in that same period.

Congratulations to Singapore on reaching the enviable milestone of having achieved a woman for President. 🏆🌺
Megawati Sukarnoputri, generally known as Megawati, is an Indonesian politician who served as president of Indonesia from 23 July 2001 to 20 October 2004. I was there when a woman became President - and have the T-shirt to prove it. Maybe the USA will be able to follow Indonesia's & Singapore's lead some day soon ! #feminism
The practices of female elephants echo the mission of Big Papa Foundation whose founders are 2 single mothers. Enjoy this beautiful Elephant story:
A few months ago, my girl Nichole Nordeman sent me a picture and a story.
It's about female elephants. You know, as all good stories begin. See, in the wild, w...hen a mama elephant is giving birth, all the other female elephants in the herd back around her in formation. They close ranks so that the delivering mama cannot even be seen in the middle. They stomp and kick up dirt and soil to throw attackers off the scent and basically act like a pack of badasses.
They surround the mama and incoming baby in protection, sending a clear signal to predators that if they want to attack their friend while she is vulnerable, they'll have to get through 40 tons of female aggression first.
When the baby elephant is delivered, the sister elephants do two things: they kick sand or dirt over the newborn to protect its fragile skin from the sun, and then they all start trumpeting, a female celebration of new life, of sisterhood, of something beautiful being born in a harsh, wild world despite enemies and attackers and predators and odds.
Scientists tell us this: They normally take this formation in only two cases - under attack by predators like lions, or during the birth of a new elephant.
This is what we do, girls. When our sisters are vulnerable, when they are giving birth to new life, new ideas, new ministries, new spaces, when they are under attack, when they need their people to surround them so they can create, deliver, heal, recover...we get in formation. We close ranks and literally have each others' backs. You want to mess with our sis? Come through us first. Good luck.
And when delivery comes, when new life makes its entrance, when healing finally begins, when the night has passed and our sister is ready to rise back up, we sound our trumpets because we saw it through together. We celebrate! We cheer! We raise our glasses and give thanks.
I have this picture saved in three different places and in a frame. (I also have an elephant ring given to me and my girlfriends from Tara Porter Livesay - it tells me: never alone.) Maybe you need this too. If you are closing ranks around a vulnerable sister, or if your girls have you surrounded while you are tender, this is how we do it.
There is no community like a community of women.
