Edward Kennedy: 'I just couldn't bear the thought of anyone drowning in a river while trying to make a better life for themselves.'
I also think of those who've died of exposure in the desert, those who've been asphyxiated in their own CO2 in truck trailers, etc. etc. etc.
All they're trying to do is what my ancestors did about 160 years ago-- come here to make their lives better.
So-- what makes my relatives [and me] better than them? Timing?
