A Sack Full of Love: Local artifact to be displayed in new Smithsonian museum

When I read the story linked above, tears streamed down my face. I cannot imagine the anguish this mother and her daughter felt at this forced separation. I am away from my family on business. The anguish I feel at parting, the heartache I experience just being a way this short time is, I’m sure, nothing in comparison.

I was raised to believe in the intrinsic value of every human life. To trade in humanity as property unthinkable.
