If anyone is saying that change is impossible, they are being drowned out by those calling out, specifically, for ways to bring ourselves into full American citizenship -- the rights and privileges that we've been fighting for, continuously, since emancipation. The ones that immigrants have fought for since arrival.
My grandmother fought her entire life for the American Dream. She came through Ellis Island as an immigrant from Greece without speaking a word of English. Alzheimer's will not be how her American Dream ends. This disease needs to be taken seriously. It's time to raise our voices for those who can't.
