To the Editor:

Life in these United States in 2019.

We sit in our comfortable living rooms or dens, watching TV. We read the sports pages and enjoy drinking and partying at tailgate parties. We overeat and try to lose weight by buying Weight-Watchers subscriptions and enrolling in well-equipped gyms. We drive our gas-guzzling SUVs from one store to another to shop. We love to call, text and search on our smart phones.

Wow. What a hard life we have. In the meantime, our country, supported by our tax dollars, has rounded up over 70,000 children separated from their families at the southern border and confined them to cages just this year. Our military has supplied weapons and other hardware to the country that just killed 34 Palestinians, among them eight in one family.

We ignore our fellow citizens who are homeless – don’t let them sit or lie on the pavement because it is bad for business. Ho hum… Let’s turn the channel and complain that our Amazon order hasn’t yet arrived.
