Lights of hope shown last night at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Central Nassau, where several of our Sisters and Associates gathered at one of the many Lights for Liberty rallies to support the end of immigrant camps and children being separated from parents. We joined with Sisters of St. Joseph along with many others from various groups hoping "for a more humane approach to caring for these suffering immigrants....especially the children," says our own Sister Pat Koehler.
