I had tears welling up as I read your comment.
I’m here complaining about things yet, as I read you, I realize that I actually have a lot of blessings. I can’t even begin to imagine how heartbroken you must have been to be so close to visiting home, yet no longer being able to.
I hope you get the chance one day.
Now, with the world as it is, I guess travel will change for the rest of our lives.
I’m learning to find the blessings in all the struggles. I believe that everything happens for good. Writing helps me think through things and the introspection allows me to tap into my own voice so I can make my own decisions instead of having to fall for the agreed labels of greed, race, and prejudice.
It’s a beautiful struggle and I enjoy every bit of my reinvention.
Thank you for your comment, brother. And I hope you find it in you to share your story with us here on Medium.
