Maria On Belonging:
As an American, I refuse to let any politician instill a sense of fear about me and my country. When I move in the United States I don’t move from a place of fear. I move from a place of I can engage anyone, I can talk to anyone, I can ask anyone anything, I am part and parcel of this country.
