Immigrants

Today, my next door neighbor was getting his roof replaced by Mexican (I think) workers. All day long, I could hear them playing Spanish songs...I absolutely loved hearing all the songs!

So then in the evening I walked over to the fence that divides our homes and got the attention of one of the workers to ask him something. He didn't speak any English so I mustered up my college Spanish and told him how much I've enjoyed listening to their music all day. And then I asked if he could play a Selena song. Well, 2 minutes later, he did! I told him how much I appreciated that and thanked him and some of the other workers

They are such hard workers and very sweet and friendly!

All I can say is....I'd rather have immigrants "invade" my neighborhood than white supremacists!!

PS....I caught the workers at just the right time....the Selena song was the last one for the day. After that, they left!

3. It's a challenge...

I'm not an immigrant but so many of my friends and some relatives are, from all over the planet, I've seen the struggles and obstacles.
