A Girl Who Travels.

“A girl who travels will need someone that questions her, not too little, and not too much. She’ll need someone to read her, but also really listen to her. Because she’ll want to do the same. She’ll want a person that shares an interest but at the same time stays genuine to who they are. Not drown in a puddle of narcissism. And not drown in a lake of fascination.”

-Lauren Klarfeld, writer.

“Whatever you want in life, other people are going to want it too. Believe in yourself enough to accept the idea that you have an equal right to it.”

“Sea lo que sea que quieras en la vida, otra gente también lo quiere. Cree en ti misma lo suficiente como para aceptar la idea de que tú tienes el mismo derecho a ello.”

– Diane Sawyer, Journalist.

Persistence.

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

– Calvin Coolidge (30th US president, 1872-1933)

The key players…

The key players who could bring immigration reform to the front line right now are the high tech moguls. Money moves mountains.

The problem is that their agenda focuses on foreign talent and not on the millions of undocumented immigrants who do not work on high tech. Yet, these millions of so called unskilled workers do move mountains at a fundamental level of the US economy, and one may argue that it all depends on how the word “skill” is defined.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform must  include the interests of both foreign talent and other workers, high tech or not.

If Mark Zuckerberg and other high tech moguls can fully assimilate this, they will set a precedent, moving forward and setting free the elephant in the room in a way that politicians and immigrant rights groups have not been able to, trapped in their own games.
