Dreaming of Healthcare
I'm undocumented. Soy undocumentada. I was born in Mexico. I'm originally from the Philippines. I was brought to this country by my parents when I was 4 years old. Right now I live in Orange county California, East Los Angeles California, Fresno California. I work, I pay taxes and I'm undocumented. I'm undocumented but I dream that one day we'll all be treated as one people because we are all one people, one people, somos iguales. we work hard and we're strong but everyone gets sick sometimes and yet many of us don;t have healthcare, cannot get health insurance, going to the doctor is just something foreign to us. Now our country has spoken, saying that everyone should have affordable health care. doe's that mean "everyone everyone," does "everyone" include me? Us too? Doesn't it make more sense to keep us all healthy instead of treating us after we get sick. I dream that one day, today, "everyone" will include me, "everyone" will include all of us. All of us! All of us. Nosotras. Because health happens when we dream together.
