Gratitude #547

Making Out Black Love

Dear Latino Kids Who Make Out Everywhere,

Thank you for your focus and commitment and determination. Thank you for keeping on even when cars honk and people yell; when kids shove past you in the hallways at school; when they throw crumpled up paper at your head; when they yell your names and tell you to move. Thank you for being in front of Vons, and in line at the bank, and at the public library. Thank you for being at the stop light where I can see you holding each other's faces or hips. You make it seem easy and completely right. Thank you for being an inspiration. Thank you for not stopping, ever.
