“European cities have long been shaped and identified by immigrant populations. No news there. It’s how they’ve historically grown and prospered. This time things are different. Attitudes and assumptions are being challenged. The essence of what it is to be a citizen is being fought for, intellectually, and physically.
When I think of London I don’t think of monuments to the past. I think of people. People like my parents who came here for a better life. But it’s not easy. London is a dream as much as a place. The streets don’t always glitter with gold. But still, people come from all around the world. We make lives, love, work, bring up families. Along the way, we keep a connection to the home country. But something else happens. Out on the street, we share the everyday. Struggles. Triumphs. Despair. We share space and time.
