In the writing title Why I Need to Go To College? written by Amy I felt shocked. I think your shows what family's should be. Unlike today where many families don’t do much with each other. you have a family that would sacrifice it all to help one another. From you mom leaving when you where little to your uncle sacrificing his freedom. A lot of people don't know or hear about this. I think this story will help open this side up to the public. It shows them the world is not all great but if you try you can make it better. I hope other readers leave this feeling as empowered as I do. I hope they see life is hard like you saying, " I came to the US Illegally. I applauded you. Your writting was about how much people gave up for you it left me felling empowered.
