Forget your turkey, eat this!

28 Nov

I just finished watching this film. Its a good film and a sad story about Native children who were kidnapped and forced to live in boarding schools. The truth is still the truth. Enjoy your turkey all you want, but remember that part of what you may be thankful for, came at the cost of life and the sacrifice of others.

 

Don’t let me go

20 Nov

Dear dad,

i remember… When I arrived to your home last december. it was hot and humid and I couldn’t wait to take off the corduroy pants I wore… You opened the door and welcomed me in. You embraced me with a big heart, a big hug, and a big smile…

“Bienvenida a tu casa…”

it was good to see you. it was good to walk into your home and into my room.

i changed into shorts and took off my shoes. I walked around barefoot on the cool, clean tile floor…

we would argue for the next 4 days about how I should wear shoes “y no Andes descalsa”… But honestly, my feet were perfectly happy walking on the cool, clean floors.

i wish I could remember more hugs. Bt now I will have to make them Up…

As I embrace you in my heart… Please feel what I feel…

It is warm between us. You wrap your arms around me. And I rest my face on your button shirt…

dont let me go … Just keep holding me …
