Before you travel to your next destination, let's dedicate a few posts to the yesterday's incredible stories. I will post some of the things I remember...and I'll leave lots for you to post! Just one story or one image you remember would be great...or more! I will always remember...
A girl crossing the border by herself, scared but determined (at 12!) to have a different life than her mother's. That same girl picking tomatoes all night long in Sacramento. That same girl returning home to a father who was, all these years later, proud of her and whose opinion of women had changed.
A boy noticing on the street a sort of "ghost town / tumbleweed" effect and then came the tanks! That same boy demanding water so his apartment complex could drink. That same boy taking the Koran that used to sit on his father's dashboard to America.
A girl wondering why she was so "dumb" that she couldn't speak at meals as all the Americans did. That same girl, as a woman, wondering if she should go "home" to Korea to retire ... only as long as her family comes!
A young woman listening to her grandmother to travel with her ears and eyes OPEN! That same young woman missing her long table full of food and family.
Okay, your turn! There are so many images, so many words! If you want to expand on something I mentioned, go for it!
Thank you all again for showing such maturity and sensitivity. You are great kids.
