Also recently read! The latest novel, AKIN (out Oct from ) features a heartwarming (but real) relationship between a retired professor & a smartmouthed grandnephew. The mix of vulnerable & knowing/jaded in an 11-year-old kid is so well done. 📚💚

Owner of the Central Hostel/hotel in Co. Clare will earn more than €4000 per month for this crammed room shared by 4 asylum seekers with the 10pm curfew. Shame on you Minister for feeding such greed at the expense of asylum seekers

Artists installed seesaws at the border wall so that kids in the U.S. and Mexico could play together. It was designed by architect Ronald Rael. ⁣ ⁣ Beautiful reminder that we are connected: what happens on one side impacts the other. 🇲🇽 ❤️ 🇺🇸
