The March for America took place downtown today. Thousands of people gathered in front of the capital to protest for immigration reform. And I was there as an observer.
This year has been all about changing my life and my destiny. But today made me think about those who don’t even have that opportunity. There are so many who come to this country looking for the freedom that is denied them in their homeland, only to have it denied here as well.
I’ve wasted so many years not going after my dreams, while so many immigrants sacrifice everything to go after theirs. I look to them for inspiration and the courage it takes to change.
