im_done_withthis The bus is late, but what's new? It's okay because the crowd thins out two stops after I board. Today is pretty quiet. One kid has his music on too loud, but the bus driver barks at him to turn it down and he does. In front of me is a couple, I can't really tell how old. Thirties maybe. Anyway, they're mad at each other. That's obvious. She sits pin straight and he sits slumped. She occasionally gives him a side glance but his eyes are glued to the floor. I stare at them, waiting, but nothing happens. They don't speak. After a while, I stop watching them and check the clock on my phone. 6:37. In twenty-three minutes, I will turn the key in my door lock and be home.

ginoorrino At car wash waiting for my whip to get clean...and i noticed a few things....bunch of latinos running everywhere cleaning cars...people across the way selling cars and erecting a building...obvious none of them had the "day off"...i start chatting with the Edcuadorian guy thay always cleans my car....i ask "todo bien papa?" He replies in broken english "everything great gracias a dios"...i say great job and give more thany usual tip considering holiday and all....he says thanks for always taking care of me and asks me how my is family is...i ask about his and he says my daughter is GOING TO COLLEGE in fall to be a teacher...i give him congrats and chest bump he smiles goes to next car.... As a first generation American of Italian and Puerto Rican descent married to an immigrant from El Salvador i can say this.... The Founders of this country believed fought and strived for the ideal to FLOURISH that ANYONE who works hard has the chance to get ahead or lay a foundation for the next generation.... HAPPY 4TH!!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA... #merica #4thofjuly #foundingfathers #americanstories #immigration #lovemycountry #redwhiteandblue #LosOrrinos 1mon

rivkah1981 Willa Cather's masterpiece shares a limitless, craggy beauty with the New Mexican landscape. Told with a directness that overlays its profound artistry, this is the story of a nineteenth century missionary priest Father Latour. Willa Cather believed that the French were sanely and humanly civilized, and that they had developed the arts o peace to a high degree - it is as important to her that the missionaries bring excellent soup, well-roast lamb, wine for the table, and methods of gardening to the culture of New Mexico as that thy bring true doctrine or even a cathedral. While her ideas may not be accepted any longer, this book is certain to endure. --taken from the introduction by A.S.
