Ana Beatriz Barros by Jason Lee Parry.
I have been marching to the drum for so long that I forgot where I was being lead to. It’s now finally over, the longest march of ignorance. For two long years I knew the outcome of this but I chose let it take the back burner. Now at the side of the cliff I stand ready to let the winds take away the truth I knew along. This has been the most herculean, most admirable march I’ve been lead on. The end of an era, the beginning of a life. The death march is finally over.
"I’m embarrassed to say this, but I’ll say it. I’ve had a really hard time finding work, so I’ve been living with my grandmother. And she’s told me recently that she doesn’t have the money to feed me. So I’ve been eating at my friend’s house. I go over there, and I’m too embarrassed to ask for anything, but his dad always insists. He says: ‘Why aren’t you eating? Please, eat!’ This has really caused my idea of ‘family’ to widen. I’ve learned that your family can be anyone."
