I often wonder what those who come here looking for freedom believe they will find and if they find it. I recently wrote a story I called The Life and Times of Wally B. I wrote the story while thinking of those who leave their homes and families for life in the U.S. I wanted to show how it might feel to leave everything you know and come here where you have only your hope of a better day that keeps you going.
I'm sitting here today, wondering if I'm shallow. I have learned that a writer must pull from their deepest thoughts… from their soul. And I do try, but then I read the thoughts of another writer and they are so much deeper than mine, so utterly beautiful.
