Hit the Hay Again

Here’s a song featuring our latest Idiom of the Week:

Hit the Hay

NRBQ

Hit the hay

I’ve been working all day

Hit the hay

What do you say?

Hit the hay, hit the hay

 

Oh, I’m tired

Let me tell you, Jack

I’m so tired

Oh, my aching back

 

Let’s hit the hay

I’ve been working all day

Hit the hay

What do you say?

Hit the hay, hit the hay

 

Oh, I’m tired

Boys, I’m really beat

I’m so tired

Oh, my aching feet

 

Let’s hit the hay

I’ve been working all day

Hit the hay

I earned my pay

Hit the hay, hit the hay

Hit the hay, hit the hay…

 

Pictures from a Vigil

Today University Settlement staff members attended a vigil on the Lower East Side to protest against the separation of families at the border. The vigil was coordinated by Families Belong Together.

Families Belong Together includes nearly 250 organizations representing Americans from all backgrounds who have joined together to fight family separation and promote dignity, unity, and compassion for all children and families

Led by the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Women’s Refugee Commission, MomsRising, FWD.us, United We Dream, People’s Action, ACLU, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, MoveOn and others, the coalition has raised millions of dollars for immigrant children and families, mobilized hundreds of thousands of people in all 50 states to take action, and helped to reunite thousands of families

Families Belong Together continues its work to permanently end family separation and detention, seek accountability for the harm that’s been done, and immediately reunite all families who remain torn apart.
