A Poem To 9/11 Families and Heroes

You are my heroes.

A Poem To 9/11 Families and Heroes

Dear Nation,

I am sorry for the way,

How it only took one person to attack,

On an early Tuesday,

A nation that has each others backs.

Many lives were lost,

Moms, Dads, Sisters, and Brothers,

So many lives were tossed,

And the people who watched it on the news could have been their grandmother.

No one truly believes how much,

One quick minute can change the nation,

With so many lives being touched,

On the greatest country of God's creation.

One day that no one forgets,

That many first responders gave,

Over thousands of tears and sweat,

From thousands of individuals who were very brave.

So each and every day,

Out of the year,

Pray for the families who are not okay,

And for the ones who are still with us here.

On One September morning,

The world changed at a blink of an eye,

Without any type of warning,

So please, by all means, cry.

Thank you for being strong,

And for risking your life,

For what has seemed like has been so long,

Your daughters, sons, husbands miss you and even your wife.

So here's to my sister's dad,

Who I do not even know,

She is absolutely an amazing person and I hope you are glad,

And you, sir, are one of my thousand heroes.

We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
