Kids Who Still Dream – Joshua Solis
Statement from Joshua Solis:
When I was 10, I had no worries; I had no idea I was poor. In Mexico, my first social relationship was with kids in the neighborhood who would come and invite my brothers and I to come out and play futbol on the streets. These kids’, appeared different from kids I grew up with back in California. They seemed filthy and wore old clothes, some had no shoes on. Their balón (ball) was made of trash. The portería (goalposts) were rocks or old shoes. The cancha (field) was the street. These kids seemed so happy despite the little they had. They dreamed of being national soccer figures, of someday becoming part of the official Mexican team — La Selección Mexicana.
These kids were dreamers! I was a dreamer! I dreamed to be many things which over the years I have forgotten.
