#96: Losing Your Mom to Deportation
By Mark Isero • Issue #96 • View online
     Hello and welcome to The Highlighter #96! This issue is coming out in the middle of the James Comey testimony. It’s OK: Go ahead and keep watching that — I understand — but be sure to get back to reading today’s edition as soon as you can, because it is a blockbuster of emotion!
     If you can spare the time (60 to 90 minutes) to read the first three articles in order, you will come away changed. I thought I knew a thing or two about the impact of deportation, the ills of the opioid epidemic, and the effects of HIV on African Americans. These three pieces quickly showed me that I have a lot more to learn — and to do. If you choose to read them, take them in slowly.
     Then, after your gut is punched, you’ll get a photo break, though it might spur even more emotion, and then, finally, a reprieve. Articles about reading and baseball will follow, and you can relax and take a breath. Please enjoy!
