Relationship: Im/migrant
Story pending

I felt very welcome in New York and especially the Lower East Side. You feel like no matter what your nationality is, your religion, you fit perfectly because it’s a melting pot. Here you look around and feel like a citizen of the world. I see all the nationalities, hear different languages everyday, which brings comfort. I wish people were living in harmony everywhere like they do on the Lower East Side because they just want to live.  America is a country of immigrants. That’s what made the United States the United States. All these great minds who migrated because they did not have the chance in their country, they found a society that protects them. You can get the best out of them after moving them from a very strict environment or very hard circumstances… this is where human beings minds start creating.
