Word Up to the Immigrants!

My mom's cousin, Jim Gion, is a fantastic scupltor and artist. He's also the same person who helped introduce me to the world of Jack Kerouac. Whenever he'd come to visit, he'd bring a bit of culture in to my life.

Jim has created this fantastic statue in Portland, Oregon, that represents the struggles and the triumphs of immigrants in Portland, and all of America. 

As an immigrant myself, with a Spanish last name that I don't know how to pronounce correctly - I love this video, and this sculpture. Well done, Jim.
