This piece directly addresses the situation on America’s southern border, asking the questions – how will we treat others? Can we remember where othering has taken us in the past? It uses Jewish and Christian phrases about the treatment of strangers, combined with the clarion call, “Never again,” to remind us of the humanity of all people.

Love your neighbor as you love yourself.
Whatever you did to the least of these, you did to me.
And neither shall you stand by the blood of a neighbor.
