Some people forget where they came from. Some people never forget where they came from. And some people don't realize where they COULD have came from. How easy they have it, how much nicer and safer they have it.
It's easy to forget, and while I'm not claiming I always am aware of how great I have it, that's why I keep this bracelet hanging from my wrist. Being from a bordertown, naturally I have seen what exists on the other side of that divided line. While journeying farther south it fluctuates from bad to good all over MX, I'm fortunate to be from the side that I'm on.
Besides have pride for what is part of me, that bracelet also serves as a reminder.
