Horror and Hope: The Long-Term Impact of Separating Children from Parents at the Border

This is not a Political Issue, this is a Humanity Issue

Pathwork Helper and teacher, Judith Garten, made a video with two other colleagues.  They made this offering, though they admit imperfect, with love and compassion for all the families ripped apart at our Southern border.  Judith in particular can understand the impact, as she was orphaned in the ending years of the Holocaust.
