My Sister's Car

by Gabriela Barboza

I always felt most peaceful in the big warm passenger seat next to the driver’s seat in my sister's car. I like that place because it makes me feel that everything it's okay. I relax—I just have to look out the window and enjoy the view. Everything there is magical: the trees moving while the car passes, the people walking and their different expressions, telling different stories, the ways that the sun touches my face while the car moves, music on the radio sounding from the bottom, making me remember all the good times in my life.
