Much of the developed world seems to have lost touch with common sense. President Trump argues for billions of dollars to build a wall that he said Mexico would pay for, a wall that will serve no useful purpose The very idea that a country as poor as Mexico with numerous far more important funding needs would pay for the wall was absurd from the start. The government of Mexico stated quite clearly that they had no intention of paying for any wall.

Mexico now has a new President, commonly referred to as AMLO. He has promised a long list of priorities all designed to improve the lives of his citizens, not one of which has anything to do with funding any wall. Despite his ambitious goals with its current financial state the government lacks the funds for all his new and worthwhile projects. Many projects will need funding from private sources and we hope to be one of them. Can we all band together by millions of good people donating just a single dollar to make good things happen? Let’s hope so.
