I have been a child therapist for over 20 years. This is my comment on what is happening to Immigrant children. What a Prime Example of the statement below.
The voice of these children say:
They can’t. They can’t say a word. Their voice has been cut off. And will never ever be free from traumatic memory again. Ever.
And like teachers, Child therapists like me- are completely undervalued in our country.
Action: Stop focusing solely on the problem. Build attention for things that could solve the problem. Empower Social workers. Empower solutions. 1 less broken wo/man starts with prevention. #immigrants #immigrantchildren #trauma #immigrantsong #immigrant #playtherapy #politics

Led Zeppelin 1971 - Have had this in my collection for ever. Original Australian red and black Atlantic label. 4 track EP. Check out the misprint on the B side! I believe it had to be recalled and re released.
There’s a lot going on in our country right now. Sometimes it can be too much to handle. Music may not be able to fix things, but I do believe with all my heart it is more than able to help us step back, breathe, and give us the peace we need to conquer the scary parts of life. If you are overwhelmed, if you are unsure, if you are anxious, if you are scared, if you are sad or mad, turn your sound on, close your eyes, and listen. Imagine you are on the top of a mountain far away from your problems. They are down in the valley, far away from you, not a part of you, for just one minute. Separate yourself. Let peace and joy wash over you. Then open your eyes and prepare to conquer the world and do good. ❤️

P.S. this is not professionally done, or even mixed a little bit. This is a raw recording on my iPhone. So, apologies for the imperfections. I like the idea of the vulnerability in this, though. I sat in my office and recorded this for you. I hope it helps someone breathe and recharge. :)

“Immigrant Song" was written during Led Zeppelin's tour of Iceland, Bath and Germany in the summer of 1970. The opening date of this tour took place in Reykjavík, Iceland, which inspired Plant to write the lyrics. The song's lyrics are written from the perspective of Vikings rowing west from Scandinavia in search of new lands. The lyrics, such as "Fight the horde, sing and cry, 'Valhalla, I am coming!'" make explicit reference to Viking conquests and the Old Norse religion. In a 1970 radio interview, Plant jokingly recalled, "We went to Iceland, and it made you think of Vikings and big ships ... and John Bonham's stomach ... and bang, there it was – Immigrant Song! #ImmigrantSong #LedZeppelinIII #1970 #Vikings

Calgary and area friends!!! You in?
I don’t have money to support, and I’m Canadian, so I struggled trying to figure out what I could do. And then I found this. Let’s go show our support and keep raising awareness!!! 🙌🏻
I am an immigrant.
I spent my second birthday on an airplane flying across the Atlantic, with my mom and dad.
My family was fortunate enough to come to the United States on our own terms. We weren’t fleeing. We weren’t seeking refuge. Our homeland wasn’t at war. We still had family and a safe place to call home if our plans fell through.
I have a very vivid image of my parents and I going through customs after traveling back from Argentina. I was about 5 years old and we had to enter the country as tourists again. Before we got to the guard my parents told me that I was not allowed to speak English. We had to pretend that we hadn’t been living here for the last three years.
I have heard so many people say, “They should just come in to the states the legal way.” Our legal immigration process took so long that we didn’t even receive our green cards until I was 10.
To this day I am still an Austrian citizen and a U.S. permanent resident. My dad is Austrian, my sisters are American, and my Argentinian mother became a naturalized citizen.
I am confident that if my parents hadn’t brought me here as a child, I would not have had same opportunities.
As an immigrant, it’s impossible to watch what is happening at the borders, and in our communities. The fact that families are being torn apart and caged like animals is infuriating. The state of this country is devastating. I’ve been asked so many times why I haven’t applied for citizenship. Look around, this is why. .

Its not about being democrat or republican. Its about being a human being. If you are ok with the separation of children from their families because they are so-called "illegal" immigrants then YOU are not human. You are a piece of shit!
No living being deserves this torture especially not these innocent children. Pay Attention People: TRUMP IS SHOWING HIS TRUE COLORS🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
We live in a world of dualities. Day and night. Light and dark. Love and fear. Soul and Ego. It took me many years to come to terms with this and to accept it. In the Birthday Book I am April 2nd which is called the “Day of the Idealist” so I struggle with injustice, greed and manipulation. I used to be paralyzed when I’d watched the news and had to learn to have a healthy distance with current affairs so that I don’t spiral- it is the only way I can move forward ❤️
2017 was a rude awakening, personally and collectively. We saw the manifested form of extreme opposites after President Obama. The paradigm shifted too far and people who weren’t ready for this shift in consciousness and progression and retaliated out of fear. Today we are in a lucid nightmare. We are now seeing the real face of the pure Ego in power. My more conscious self tells me that the Universe has a master plan and that there exists this tension between dualities but my human self feels sadnesss because what we see goes against everything that our Souls stand for which is Love. Theres always discomfort in change and growth to push up out of the old. There’s always discomfort when we have to confront what we are no longer 🧡
