Half-white, half-middle-eastern. Where do I belong?

Aimiee Gauvreau,
Redondo Beach, CA.

I’m almost 47 now; I felt more alone as a child and teenager of the 70s and 80s.
I teach high school English in a beautiful California beach community, and the kids are more open now, yet I see how the aloneness persists within them too.

Maybe in another 50 years, people like me will not question where they belong anymore.
