The inspiration of this photo was the political situation in the US when I was staying there last January. I have stayed there for just a month but already fell in love with the country and the City of New York and New Jersey. There is so much diversity especially in NYC where no one let me feel like I am not welcomed. I was completely surprised about how experienced New York. Coming from a country whose warmth and hospitality are what we are most proud of, New York caught me by surprised. People from all walks of life, what ever country they came from or what their race are, you can see how happy they are and the smile in their faces show it. It is just so disheartening that walls instead of bridges have come to the US. I understand the fear on both sides, but I also know that to overcome that fear, you should not let hate rule you but love and understanding. Walls and hate will just divide the country, just as what is happening in mine. I just hope, humanity comes around and not go back to what great people before us have fought for.
