"Immigrant Parents"

Immigrant Parents

My mother and father worked as field workers in Texas; they never learned to

read and write english. They sent me to school. I learned the english language

better than most. I became a military journalist, then worked for the Los Angeles

Times, where I began writing novels about the mexican border, Texas cities,

and Los Angeles. I would encourage any kid to learn both languages, english

and spanish and with those tools, succeed anywhere in the United States.
