I have had a terrible time writing lately. Every time I start, I erase it and forget about. Writing still feels therapeutic when I manage to force myself to do it, but mustering up enough energy to give myself yet another reminder of what is going on in my life is exhausting. Today however, was a special day. Today, energy was given to me by Jose Antonio Vargas and 35 other undocumented citizens. The cover of Time magazine was just what I was needing. I am proud of those 36 people who have put their lives on the line to show documented Americans what being undocumented really is. Had Greysis come home and told me that he wanted to do this, I think I would have said no. I would have been far too scared. I did not even make this blog public until Greysis was in Mexico because I was terrified of what could happen. It takes more courage than I could ever muster up for those people to stand there and tell the world their stories. I wish I could tell each of them thank you. I know Greysis and I have a process that we are able to go through. I know that eventually, he will have permanent residency and after that, will eventually, legally, become a citizen. I know that the majority of these people have no process to go through and will never reach that. Greysis and I have talked about this at length and we have both said that we will not stop fighting for this cause just because he has documentation. We will not forget what we had to go through to get his documentation and the injustice that went along with that. We will not stop trying to educate people by telling our story in the attempt to help people see the human side of this issue. This is not a political issue. This is a human issue. No human being is illegal and no human being should ever be treated as such.
