This is a poem Lucy read as part of the interfaith service on Dec. 9th which prepared participants for the Dec. 10th "Love knows no borders: A moral call for migrant justice" action in San Diego.
Standing at the border fence in Tijuana
Construction workers hide their faces while making it higher
The wall is built abutting a shrine and inches from a family’s house
Even the trees spread their branches trying to stand in the way
As they build this new wall, a deep tear in the land
