The Illegal Immigrant
The illegal immigrant working on my neighbor’s house just raided our vegetable garden. He was sneaking himself some cucumbers. I stepped outside and asked him what he was doing. He said something in Spanish to me. I told him, “Go ahead. You can take it.” I’m frustrated. My heart breaks. Are these people going to hurt me? Are they hungry? What else was I supposed to say? I wanted him to know he could take it BUT why do you have to steal it?
