when will it stop?
By Víctor Zúñiga
I woke up one morning thinking of all the sacrifices that AB540 (Undocumented) students have to go through in order to survive. It’s a story I have in common with other people in my situation. Usually this is how it goes, we work 2 to 3 jobs, and in an effort to save money for school, for which we do not receive any kind of financial aid, sometimes we don’t eat or sleep as much as a normal human being is supposed to. We exploit public transportation, which should count as saving the environment. We face the daily threat of deportation, “la migra” as the usual suspect. And we are living in secret, invisible to the eyes of many.
DREAMERS abandoning their fears were my inspiration. There wasn’t any other way to put it; we are super heroes, and now we are unafraid.
