I am worried about the situation Mexico is going through. I was given the opportunity to live here in the U.S. but all of my family lives back in Mexico. Evert time I call them, things got worse and they keep asking me not to visit them, as that could be dangerous for me. I have worked really hard in this country and Ive been able to grow and economically help my family. I feel what is happening to them is not fair and I don’t know whether I should stay or go back to them.

Dear Torn Between Countries:
I believe most Mexican people who live in this country feel the same way. Going back would only make it worse, as you said you are economic support for them and probably they are very happy that you have the opportunities the U.S. offers them. Get in touch with them, tell them you love them and miss them and wish them better times may come soon. If you have spiritual beliefs, pray for them and have faith, this will sonn be over. Remember: No war can last one hundred years, or a town who could tolerate it.
