Photos cannot possibly capture the events surrounding "the Mega March" through Dallas on Sunday that raised awareness concerning immigration issues and the current political reality in our nation.
Janet Morrison, Director of Children's Education here at Central Dallas Ministries, shared these photos with me of her experience on Sunday.
The sheer size of the crowd revealed something about the nature of our current immigration challenge. The nature and disposition of the crowd revealed a great deal about the character, determination and quality of the people seeking recognition and, in many cases, citizenship.
American flags were everywhere!
The colors and the overwhelming presence of white shirts stamped the images of the day on every heart.
The streets of Dallas were packed with people and with hope.
