About this submission

I chose to tell this specific story to shed light on the often misunderstood world and identity of the 'White Texan.' When thinking about the cultural divide in Texas and in the capital city of Austin, I realized I needed to craft a story that spoke to all audiences about how we can come together after initially feeling worlds apart. By using a universal feeling but a personal incident of loss that happened in my life, I tried to convey the message of brotherhood and reconciliation.
