I love Indiana. I love driving through cornfields, playing Euchre, and getting swept up in basketball-mania.

My grandfather taught me that "There is magic and meaning in every moment." These words were passed down to him from his grandfather, and from his grandfather's grandfather, and I witness the truth of those words with my eyes every day. I have come to realize that as Shakespeare wrote, they are "upon me proved." As an undocumented immigrant, I do not need to be accepted into your terrestrially timed nation-state to be the human I was created to be. My life trajectory has a destiny and fate that is not controlled by the powers of empire. As my grandfather taught me, I am sure that there is magic and meaning in my life. Love is what brought me into this world, and it is by compassion and grace that I was raised. I am done begging, sitting, waiting, and crying at your doorstep.

I am not happy with the results of the 2010 elections. I think the elections turned on misinformation, anger, and fear.

Are you feeling dismayed that comprehensive immigration reform will not be a victory this year? I am with you in those feelings of frustration.
