There's Always Hope
When the other detainees heard that I did 19 years and was still fighting against deportation, they said that it gave them hope and strength to keep fighting for theirs. For some of the detainees being locked up for two or three months seemed like an eternity.
I'm glad that I can give them a little hope during their struggles. However, they failed to realize that if I did't have the unconditional support from my family & friends, life would've been less bearable.
