The tradition I carry on is…
The tradition I carry on is to say a blessing every morning and think about today's is going to be a good day. I'm blessed because I have good health, I have a job, and give a simple blessing to help me get through the day knowing that there's a black cloud that follows me everywhere knowing that you are still undocumented and that at any moment, even though you have DACA, that can get taken away. My faith has definitely followed it to the Jewish pathway and the underlying path that you have to be a good person and you have to pursue those Jewish values of repairing the world as treating the stranger as how you would want to be treated. It's really grounded me in having hope as just as the Jewish people have hope of no longer being slaves in Egypt. I think I have hope of no longer being undocumented in the United States and having the benefit that every other citizen has because I consider myself as much an American as anyone born here.
