Who will cry for me when I’m gone?

America has a long history of scattering ashes and burying bodies in hallowed soil everywhere, and even beyond our own land. The Normandy American Cemetery is where thousands of white Christian crosses, Jewish stars of david, and Islamic five-pointed stars mark the graves of our soldiers who died on French soil during World War II.Many other cemeteries scattered around our own nation are full of weather beaten headstones, stained by tall grass and choked with weeds. The grave markers are like pearls that have long ago lost their luster and, yet, are as pure as the tears shed by those who once loved these fallen soldiers.

That’s a benefit of privilege, to remain blind or apathetic until something’s front and center in your own life. When I surrendered my cisgender privilege, I also gave up my right to use a bathroom when I need it, apparently.

BOOKS: By Barbara Lloyd McMichael

   My hometown of SeaTac, Washington – a landscape snared between the burgeoning metropolises of Seattle and Tacoma – is home not only to the 9th busiest airport in the nation but also to a hugely diverse immigrant population.
