Think about leaving every little thing you have got, everybody you already know, everybody you’re keen on, behind. Having to cross half a continent on foot, atop freight trains, inside truck trailers. Swimming throughout wild rivers. Crossing borders illegally. Strolling throughout the Arizona desert. Being shot at, robbed and overwhelmed. Raped. Surviving all of it. Crossing into the USA, after life within the poorest components of Central America. Succeeding. Now. Within the “promised” land, you don’t belong, legally; or socially. You don’t perceive the language. Nobody is aware of you arrived, nobody is aware of you exist. Think about…. being No person. Then think about a bag being shoved over your head. Getting your garments stripped from you. Getting tossed in a closed room with a dozen others. A loaded gun is pointed at your head. You might be pressured to name again dwelling and beg for cash, a ransom on your life.
