The Second Cooler. The Movie. The Movement. With Martin Sheen.
Today is the twelfth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks. As we remember all those who lost their lives directly or indirectly because of the attacks, we need to remember others of our brothers and sisters. We need to remember the migrants whose lives were affected terribly as they became branded as terrorists or potential terrorists. We remember the migrants who became the rationale–the excuse–for increasing militarization of our southern border. We remember those who died as a result–alone, lost, terrified in the Sonora Desert, the Rio Grande, the Pacific Ocean.
