Stop atrocities to boat people

After reading the article in The Bee “Valley churches must answer desperate cries of boat people,” (Aug. 22) by Phil Fullerton, I felt compelled to write.

I am an 85-year-old widow and am unable to walk long distances carrying a sign or flag, urging people in the U.S. to take up the injustices being done to these illegal persons.

I can pray. Next, we can write, email or call our congressmen and tell them these atrocities must stop. They must address this issue now. I know the U.S. can’t take in every illegal person, but they must get busy weeding out the “bad,” who make it bad for the “good.” Most of these people are just looking for a place to find peace, away from the suffering and fear they face every day.

I pray for world peace but, it won’t come unless… “If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
