People Who Freak out when They Find out I’m Haitian
The earthquake was horrible, I know. I lost three members of my family, and I’d prefer it if you didn’t remind me of that fact every time I walk in the room. Every day I have my teachers trying to council me, my friends thinking I’m a charity case, and total strangers criticizing me. It’s nice that they care, but listening to “here, I brought your family some extra clothes” every day is kind of tiresome.
