Because family is a tree with deep roots embedded in rich soil. Because family is the branch that allows more branches to grow, evolve, bloom, and change within the soul and on the surface. Because family is the leaf that doesn’t fall too far from the tree, even when it’s time to leave. Because family is first, always.
p.s. Remember my rap and spoken word professor? Professor Luis? The one that always signs off “be curious?” Well, on Tuesday, I was supposed to have his midterm: a presentation/ performance of a rap song and poem with my assigned group. But class got canceled, because this time, he signed off as:” Prof. Abuelito Luis,” as it was the right thing to do. So, here’s to putting family first!
p.s.s Congrats to professor Luis for being a first-time abuelito, grandpa!
