You were just holding a light saber in the living room and now... you are 21. I couldn’t be prouder to have you as a son. You are a wonderful human being and the best birthday gift I have ever received. I love you Cal - Happy 21st Birthday.

“100 DAYS IN PRISON
Sarah Mardini has been locked up in a Greek prison for the last 100 days. Her crime: Spending two years working as a volunteer on Lesbos, where she and her humanitarian colleagues have succeeded in preventing countless drownings and deaths among refugees making the Aegean crossing from Turkey to Greece. In criminalising the efforts of humanitarians like Sarah, the Greek government sends out a message that is loud and clear: On the European coastline, saving lives is to be treated as a punishable crime. The same ominous message that Trump sends out on the US-Mexican front as he calls for the use of lethal force against unarmed asylum-seekers. “ Candice Breitz.
I had the privilege of speaking Sarah’s words in Candice Breitz work LOVE STORY currently at the MFA in Boston Massachusetts. The piece examines the worldwide refugee crisis and posits the idea that we more easily identify with celebrity story than are able to hear the stories of real people in actual crisis. I hope you can hear Sarah’s story and support and celebrate her for the hero that she is. Please add your name to this petition in support of her release from prison. www.freehumanitarians.com #sarahmardini

So - Let’s #EndGunViolenceTogether - go to TOMS.com to send your Representatives a postcard demanding they take action on what more than 90% of Americans agree on: universal background checks. @TOMS is also investing $5 million into organizations across the country who are committed to ending gun violence.
