Blink of an eye


That's a good way of summing up everything that's been going on these last few weeks.The DREAM Act movement went from planning, to calling and getting an answer. The DREAM Act was up in the air earlier this week. If you're reading this chances are you know already. It didn't happen. At best it was a splash of cold water to our collective faces. To wake up from our trance and realize that there's still work to be done. The DREAM Act is going to pass this year. Whether we do it the hard way or the easy way. It looks like the hard way at this point, but it's nothing the movement can't handle.

That's one good thing about growing up in poor communities with high crime rates and dense minority residents. You can take anything and still keep going, and we will. Giving up is not in our nature as DREAM Act students and individuals, if it was we would have listened to everyone, gone back to Mexico and that would be the end of that. But it's also in my nature to do things that pisses people off because they told me to do it, rather than letting me do it own my own. Whatever happens pass or not, I'll still be here sharing. I'll still go on about my life and I'm sure there will still be some of you here reading and supporting and/or hating me and trying to put me down by writing mean, vindictive comments. If it's one thing I've learned, you can't expect to put out things like this without getting apposing views.
