    I'm not usually an attached person when it comes to material things. All my life I've been moving in so many directions. I never had a steady home, so I lost a lot of things, sometimes not even realizing they're gone until months later.

Immigrating from Korea to America was a monumental change; making new friends and adjusting to the new culture were some huge hardships, to (pun intended) speak nothing of the new, unfamiliar language.

    Most immigrants (undocumented or not) come to the United States under similar conditions that brought my own family here. Not every immigrant is nearly as lucky as my mother and her father were. Every year about a half a million people cross the border into the US illegally; most of these people are from Latin America and are in search of a better life.
