152. wrong thinkin’

sometimes i wonder what i would do if i was born, grew up, and had a family in a place that had zero opportunity and even less hope for me and my family.
i would like to believe that i might undertake any course to find a way to do better for them, even at the risk of arrest or death along the way.
it seems like a noble thing to do.
and that's when i realized that probably is how most illegal immigrants reason, which pretty much means i've been thinking wrong about all this.
i also suspect my birth privilege has rendered me less courageous than the guys cutting the lawn right now anyhow.
