From Romania with loving concern

A few years ago, I joined a mission to Romania to work with children who had been abandoned and ignored in that country’s orphanages.

These children were suffering from the same inhumane indifference as is now inexcusably happening in the detention shelters on the Mexican border.

Lessons from Romania clearly taught that the deprivation of loving concern and care in those young lives scarred those children emotionally and socially.

How can we allow this to happen in our own country? Why are our elected representatives in Congress — U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess and Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz — silent on this issue?
