Crossing the Line
My short story "Crossing the Line: Texas" appears in the Knoxville Writer's Guild's latest anthology Outscape: Writings on Fences and Frontiers. "Crossing the Line: Texas" was inspired by a five year old girl from Hidalgo, Mexico, that I met several years ago. There are so many children who have experienced things I can't even imagine. I hope that by writing this story I will give a voice, albeit fictional, to the millions of undocumented immigrants in this country who have no voice.
