The reason that I made the decision to leave my country and my dear family is because here in this country there are many opportunities to be a successful person. I came to this country to find a better life, everyone wants a better life, a calm life, without fear, without apprehension. In my country there are many young boys who are killed because they are in gangs. These are some of the reasons why Hispanic people immigrate to this country to get away from problems that might cause them to die. And those of us who are here do not want to do anything bad, we are here to look for a better life.

Our hearts go out to the performers and their families of the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland, California who were forced to work and perform in unsafe conditions. No one should be creating, working and living in unsafe conditions . Greed in real estate has once again trumped respect and safety for these artists and their audiences. Live performances are where we connect as individuals, families and communities; it defines who we are and artists must be respected and cherished.
