I woke up with tears,
and it took me two hours to get calm and ready for a new day.
Scrolling through posts of people on Facebook and Instagram sharing about ICE’s announcement yesterday, I thought, ‘at least we are all in this together.’ Many people stay by my side, our side, international students’ side, and that soothe the waves of anger in my heart.
To fresh my mind, I went to the Asian store today and bought milkfish, dumpling, chocopie, and ingredients for chè chuối. As soon as I finished my cheesecake, I’d make the best desserts ever out of these. I’m ecstatic.
