The great depression was the worst economic recession in the history of the industrialized world. Majority of the population was homeless and starving. People were running out of food and there were very limited number of jobs. Whenever a job came available, people were forced to move to support their families. The struggles and adversities citizens were obligated to face was unreal.

I was born in the capital of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. My family was native to the land having lived there for decades, but we were soon refugees due to famine and war between ethnic groups who had laid claim to the land we inherited from our ancestors. In leaving, my mother left behind her family, knowing that she may never see them again, so that we; her children, could have a better chance at life. She understood that we were susceptible to becoming victims of war, that it was impossible to foster a home during war. Ultimately, with the war progressing, we moved to the shacks of Nairobi, Kenya in an effort to seek asylum.
Being a child of immigrant parents is not easy. You are constantly living in the fear that one day you’ll wake up and you parents won’t be there with you anymore. Specially now that we have a new president, things are getting more challenging. But don’t get me wrong, I live a happy life. I am proud to call myself a Latina.
I come from an authentic Hispanic family, who is traditional in plenty distinct aspects. We treasure all the memories that have occurred to all of us and we laugh about the embarrassing moments we all had. We hold traditional customs and we accept new traditions as well. All of us are over protective of each and every family member, meaning that if anyone in the family has a problem we will not stop until it is fixed. To every family member, family is always first.
On page 40 is an image by Dorothea Lange called, “Migrant Mother”, taken by Dorothea Lange. This image is a black and white photograph of an immigrant mother in Nipomo, CA. Two of her children cling onto her as she looks away from her children. The image is meant to be a reference to the Madonna and child paintings. However, considering the content of the image, the Madonna and child reference is not very explicit.
I am writing a letter to you because I am thankful that you have given me land. Also that since I am a farmer/fisherman I wouldn’t be able to afford the land. I don’t think that it is fare that I have to give 10% of my prophet to you I am one of the lower parts of the social class in japan so I don’t make as much money as you think. Imagine the economy if we let foreigners in, they will try to over through our religion and possibly over through you.
Few moments in life are etched into your memory so clearly that you can recall the details surrounding that moment, even years later. May 29th, 2010 was one of those moments. It was a Saturday. I remember who was in the room with me and what I was wearing. The clock read 6:57 p.m. when I received the phone call from my mother as she revealed that she had been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
When I was younger, I remember asking my mum to say words such as “water” and “car” for me because she would pronounce these words as “worta” and “ca.” It was almost like a game for me; it was so interesting to me that my mum spoke differently than all the other adults. Although my mum would ask me to hop in the ca, or ask me if I wanted a glass of worta, for a long time, I never wondered why she spoke like this. When I was older, I finally asked my mum why she spoke this way. The answer was she was born and raised in Australia.

The workforce in most industrialized countries is aging and becoming more age-diverse. And immigrant workers play a large and important role in our economy and society. As child-care providers, food preparation workers, home health care aides, software programmers and construction workers, these workers constitute a significant labor force and provide services that millions more workers depend upon. Currently, I am working with a significant shortage of certified nursing assistants (CNAs) in our CCRC communities.
It is almost two in the morning, and we still have not been able to see her. Five days have passed by, and the presence of my mother was non-existent. School is out for the weekend; time to have fun and mess around and the sight of her brings a smile to our faces. The days fly by fast, and she goes missing once again.
