Is this YOUR America?

18 Oct

At about 2 am one night, he was woken up by a woman who asked him to come and pick her and her family up immediately and drive them to North Carolina.

He drove to their apartment where he found the two parents, three children and a small number of bags waiting for him. “Can you hurry up, we’re very scared,” the woman said. “The police followed my husband on his way back from work and that’s why we’re leaving.”

It took eight hours to get to North Carolina. The children slept the whole journey; the father sat in silence; the mother cried all the way.

From the heart-wrenching article about the effects of Alabama’s new law on an entire community.
