- A Somali student, on what has surprised her most about the United States. (via 33113)
As a person we never want to have our ideas oppressed or told it’s not good enough. But what do I do when my family oppresses my needs and feelings, and with the one I love, he just consistently wants to leave, but stays because he sees nothing else. I have never wanted to leave him, because he is all I want.
