They Wlll March For Immigrant Rights and to Give Thanks

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles will hold a Thanksgiving march in North Hollywood.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) will hold a Thanksgiving march on Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 9 a.m. to honor immigrant contributions to the United States and remember the 1.5 million immigrants deported since the beginning of the Obama administration.

Thanksgiving meals will also be served to 500 people, along with food basket giveaways to needy families. The procession will begin at the North Hollywood Day Laborer Center at 11841 Sherman Way and conclude at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church at 7800 Vineland Ave. in Sun Valley.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles was formed in 1986 to advance the human and civil rights of immigrants and refugees in Los Angeles; promote harmonious multi-ethnic and multi-racial human relations; and through coalition-building, advocacy, community education and organizing, empower immigrants and their allies to build a more just society, according to its website.

Well, Al, perhaps you have just demonstrated why an organization like CHIRLA formed in the first place. That's a lot of derogatory language and blanket stereotyping you are throwing out.

When hate heats up the heart of man only compassion can cool it down. It is not anger, not aggression, not lines of division, not narrow minded views that it can only be this or that. Blind is that who thinks that his or her anger and hatred towards another human being is justified by his own limited thinking. Thinking that is bases on limited views about how the world should be. It is only when we put our fixed ignorant view to the side and have an open mind and heart can we actually learn to listen and begin to understand the vastness of possibilities that are available to us all. Only then can barriers fall and peace will bless this land instead of the hate, anger and sorrow that lives in many American hearts. That my friends, is the bigger poison. That is the killer of the soul. This poison is not the cause of an external being but self inflicted because we are afraid to have our hearts and minds opened. We are afraid to go beyond our fixed views because we are afraid of what we might find.
