Your immigration stories
I dream palm trees
I have two African American adult children. I attend a Spanish speaking church. Huntsville Alabama has been my home for most of the last thirty years. It has been a challenge for the last few years because Hispanics like me that still has an accent are unwelcome in most parts of Alabama. I am one of the lucky ones because I live in the progressive city of Huntsville and our Mayor promotes inclusiveness.
The object that reminds me of home is the Palm Trees, when I see them I feel alive. I have a Palm Tree on my business logo, and all over the house. The picture attach is on my website and Facebook page, I took it while on the car on my way to the airport in Santo Domingo. I visited the Dominican Republic three times last year, If God permits I will spent my retirement there, under the sun, on a beach with a lot of Palm Trees, drinking coconut water.
