I just watched Black Panther. Great movie and it addressed an issue I didn't expect it to. It had this core message of "Should we keep all this to ourselves, or let people in?" The answer, in the end, was "Let's give to others what we have."
How is this relevant to us? I think it brings an amazing solution to immigration in the U.S right now. People are yelling about closing off our borders and wanting us to let everyone in. Others want to close off from others, like Wakanda, and leave out immigrants. I think we should not look at either, but to what Wakanda did.
We should not let everyone in, this has led to corruption in our country, but we also should reach out. Why are they coming to us? For hope. We are a nation of hope for a new life. Why aren't we fixing that? Why aren't we going to them and actively reaching out?
There is a Bible verse that says "Go into all the nations-." We aren't doing this. There are people I know who went to Cambodia 25 years ago to revive the country, having been led by God. They focused on the children, the poor, and the widows. Now, a once war torn country is really turning over and has been prospering. Why? Those kids they started with grew up. The same goes for Africa. 20 years ago, that continent was different. Now, the countries are really starting to thrive. We as a nation need to do this with Mexico, Korea, Iran, Iraq, and anyone who wants to leave a hopeless life. We need to take up initiative and change the world for the better.
