Coming from South America you may have already guessed that my religion (if any) would be Roman Catholic.
Coming most of you from South East Asia and the Arab World, I can guess you may not be Roman Catholic or Jew.
Nevertheless, and despite what your religion is (who cares after all?), I wanted to share a thought I once had about Immigration as a form of Liberation or Resurrection.
I certainly think there’s something of that in this process of coming to another country. We look for a new life, we want to escape from whatever oppression we suffer now (in any sense, anuy kind of oppression). We look for a new start for us and for those close to us.
We sacrifice. We sacrifice our lives in some sense. We are giving up an old way of life and what we used to be to be someone new with a new life.
We come here with old wounds inflicted by others and ourselves. And many won’t believe us.
We will have to fight against new prejudices and those who don’t believe on us. We will have to face new sacrifices for a promise of a better land. The Promise Land.
Is Canada your Promised Land, your Mecca? If so, why?
Writing in English is a terrible challenge for me. It takes me a lot of work translate with my ides with the same sentiment from Los Ziegler to The Zieglers.
Sometimes, I just give up and move on leaving this small community without some information and thoughts I’d have liked to share.
Nevertheless, this blog has seen during the last months a slow but steady growth. There’s more people becoming aware of it and probably is filling a space some other blogs are not able to fill.
Those of you dropping by to read every post and sometimes may be too shy to comment, are the fuel that makes me move on with this idea of the English Blog.
So, in a nutshell, and to avoid more grammatical mistakes, I just wanted to say “Thank You!” to you all.
“Thank You!” for being there, for trusting my advice and reading my posts. I hope I can give you a much better blog and be more helpful next year!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year…
We can call it a week (almost).
Why not having a conversation? Let’s have a chat in the comments about anything you have in mind. Related to Canada or not.
Do you have a question, a tip, an advice, an offer, a problem, an answer? Just leave a comment and share with your fellow readers at The Zieglers Blog.
I know it has nothing to do with Canada… but I LMAO!
