Storyboard Text

  • Dios me lleve...
  • Capitol Oaks
  • Leave alone... Leave alone...
  • Leave
  • Alone
  • That's him...
  • "As the bus drove on, I pulled my dictionary from my purse to look up the words I wanted," (150). I could see the sign of my destination from the window of the bus: "Capitol Oaks"
  • Leave alone...
  • "I looked up dejar. Leave. Sola. Alone. Leave alone," (150). The words resonated in my head. I had to defend my Maribel. It's my duty to stand up for my child, especially when she can't do it herself.
  • GO HOME!
  • "There, walking down the driveway of a brown clapboard ranch-style house with rusted gutters, I saw him- the boy- dragging a trash can down the cracked driveway," (151). "I could feel, like some sort of mist that hung in the air, that I was unwelcome," (151).
  • We were only an arm's length apart. Finally, I summoned up the courage to say, "Leave Alone". He seemed confused, then angry. He didn't know what to think of me because I was different from him, so the only thing he knew to feel was anger.
  • The boy approached me with his fingers in the shape of a gun, touched his hand to my forehead, then pretended to shoot. The words he said next took what feeble confidence I had in myself and my identity as an American and bent them nearly beyond repair...
  • "I knew those words, and I knew by the way he said them that he didn't mean I should go back to the apartment," (152). The words hit me like a runaway train, and I started to question, do I really belong?
