The title of this entry is taken from the musical Hamilton.
I live in Queens, NY. It is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in America. It’s something I guess I take for granted. There are Black, White , Hispanic, Asian, Indian…and within those groups are other groups from all over. And I love it. For most of my time in school I was an ESL instructor. All of my students were immigrants and some of them were the very best people Ive ever met in my whole life. Immigrants are not useless. It puzzles me why some people are made to prove they deserve to be here. We ourselves are foreigners. If you are not a Native American – your family also came from some place else.
On another..and sad note. I found out yesterday that one of my blog friends died over the weekend, She went through so much, with strength. I’m glad to have known her. RIP Melissa.
