I've stayed away from the news most of the day. When I checked in, I heard the good news that the courts put a stay on Mr. Trump's order to ban particular folks from particular countries from entering the United States.
I am heartened by the protestors at the airports around the country. So many of us want to be a welcoming people.
One of my favorite authors, Elizabeth Gilbert, shared this story today of a woman in a Muslim country who welcomed her and brought her back to health when Liz fell sick in a far-off land. It's well worth a read.
