    I understand a little. Sometimes when I am standing in line at the grocery, I try to help ladies who don’t speak English and the clerk doesn’t understand them. Now my Spanish is probably as broken as their English but it gives me a sense of what they are going through and it tells me I should work harder. In Dallas there are a lot of bilingual people and there is more effort to communicate but it wasn’t always that way and it is a shame that people should feel shame at not speaking English.

    1. Some people do. A lot of my relatives speak a broken English but so do a lot of people around them so I think it’s less of a stigma? I dunno. I can see where it would feel hard some days.
