Two worlds, where do I belong?

Manuel Catalan,
Lompoc, CA.

Being a Mexican American always makes me think about how race affects everyone. I was born in the United States but my family comes from Mexico, although I look like I could’ve been born in Mexico myself. I serve in the U.S Marine Corps and I get to experience and meet the many different people of different races and cultures that put their differences aside and work together as a team. The best part about realizing the difference in races is that those differences are what brings us together. Learning about each culture and race helps to understand better where someone is coming from and what they’re all about.
