I love you. If all else whispers back into the tide, know this for fact. By grace given me by the Goddess Arashu, I bid her divine protection to you, my warrior-angel, my Siha, to succeed in your destiny. To light your path through the coming darkness. To give you hope, when all seems lost.
I told my boyfriend, who wanted to see all the Oscar movies and was
getting kind of frustrated because I never wanted to go to the movies
with him, that if he could find a movie with an ethnic person in it,
then we’ll go. It could be any movie, it doesn’t have to be a
blockbuster, it can be an indie, just a movie that has ethnic people in
it. And we ended up getting ice cream because he sent me an animation.
It’s a bit disappointing.
I also want to have a family of my own and live a life that is exemplary
for others, especially for those that relate to my story. I believe in a
better world. I want to be a part of the solution. Because it affects
me so personally, Immigration reform in this country is on the top of my
list. The importance to fight for Human rights and the environment goes
without saying. This is just the beginning and there is much to be
done. I know I have to work hard for the rest of my life and that is OK.
