  1. Aside from the fact that you would probably have a better time staying at home… You have touched on so much in such a small passage. The pain inflicted by racism and xenophobia are woven through the words. Awareness comes in so many facets. Thank you for this.

  2. Well written and delivered so gently, yet so powerfully! I am so sad about this situation in what is supposed to be such a free and intelligent country. I so miss the days when I was a little kid who lived in tough neighborhoods and ghettos and I was just another kid and it didn’t matter what colors or backgrounds we had going on, we were just kids who drank Kool-aide and ate baloney sandwiches at each others houses. I know it’s an oversimplification of things, but I still wish we could go back there…
