Quote of the day:
"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children."
~ Nelson Mandela

12 boys and their soccer coach rescued from a cave in northern Thailand and the entire world, including the US, holds its breath and gets hourly updates on their condition until their ordeal is over.

Somewhere between 1,425 - 1720 children [give or take a thousand or so], some under the age of five are taken from their parents and mistreated – held in horrible conditions -- and a huge amount of the US citizenry shrugs and says "what can you expect?  They're illegal aliens".  Elon Musk doesn’t offer to help them

 They’re children and they are scared, lonely and desperate.
