THIS LAND WAS MADE
How can any one with a heart not understand the desire and need that some people have to come to America?
How can anyone keep people in need away?
Watch this ad and for 6 minutes put yourself in the shoes of that mother.
Feel her hope, feel her fear, feel her apprehension!
THIS LAND WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME!
No words are needed.
Please, watch the ad.
“This Land Is Your Land” is one of the United States’ most famous folk songs. Its lyrics were written by American folk singer Woody Guthrie in 1940 based on an existing melody, a Carter Family tune called “When the World’s on Fire“, in critical response to Irving Berlin‘s “God Bless America.” When Guthrie was tired of hearing Kate Smith sing it on the radio in the late 1930’s he sarcastically wrote “God Blessed America for Me” before renaming it “This Land Is Your Land.”
The original lyrics to the song included this verse
“There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me.
The sign was painted, said ‘Private Property.’
But on the backside, it didn’t say nothing.
This land was made for you and me.”
Here’s The ‘Controversial’ Super Bowl Ad That Crashed 84 Lumber’s Website

The ad featured a Spanish-speaking mother and daughter apparently traveling from Mexico to the United States.
The end, which shows the pair discovering a door in a giant wall, was reportedly banned from TV since it commented on Drumpf’s, the #SoCalledPresident, promised border wall.
After showing part of the ad, 84 Lumber directed people to check out Journey84.com to see the rest. That obviously didn’t work.
Thankfully, that’s why there’s YouTube.

I do not own these images.
No intention of taking credit.
