So I think I have it bad at times…

Just when I think that my problems are everything, I read two books by Francisco Jimenez: The Circuit and Breaking Through.  It makes me think that whatever trials I endured while on my way to earning my education were not as dramatic.  Being the daughter of immigrants, however, I connected on a much more personal level and renewed my belief that being "other" can still be a setback, but not a terminal sentence.
