I welded up this Native American sculpture a few years ago to pay respects to my great great grandmother. All of this political and social division is very depressing to me... yet I try to understand and respect all sides as much as possible. The thing I keep coming back to, however, is that America is comprised of immigrants. With the exception of Native Americans, from whom this country was taken, each of us is here because of immigration. Our ancestors took what did not belong to them, with force, and made this country theirs... and now we have the right to close the borders to people of a particular nationality because we see them as a threat? We are the threat. We are our own enemy. Shame on us for not seeing that. Our government leaders are acting out of fear and it is dangerous to us all.
