Thank for sharing a personal story about a universal issue, Jean. I think people often miss the point of the protests and riots and slogans because it isn't about them. They don't see it as their personal story, but you illustrate that it can be. One change in a life makes what might seem distant and impersonal very close and very personal - a walk in someone else's shoes.
