Storyboard Text

  • I was excited to go to my "root" country of El Salvador, and see where my parents grew up.
  • I already knew that the conditions there were not the best, and that things were going to be different compared to home.
  • I, however, was still surprised.
  • There were young children, sweeping the streets and washing windows just to earn some measly coins.
  • Whole neighborhoods had sporadic access to running tap water, due to an unbalance in the utility system.
  • It made me aware of how lucky I to be staying in the area that I was in. I had basic amenities, plus some luxuries.
  • It especially made me feel lucky to be born and living where I am.
  • Sometimes when I get frustrated and wish that I could be somewhere else, I think about what I saw. I meditate on it, and feel grateful for being here.
