American Princess

My mom once told me that she would never vote, even if she could. I always suspected that about her. She never showed any interest in politics or what was happening in America. She wasn’t concerned with what happened here. She kept her British citizenship. She would always be British.

When Princess Diana died she closed our dark burgundy curtains and watched BBC coverage for days on end. She cried and cried. She bought documentaries about Princess Diana and watched them like a Star Wars marathon.

I cried too, but mostly out of frustration. I was mad at my mom for ignoring our family because some lady in England died. I mean I was sad a princess died, but it’s not like I really knew her. She wasn’t an American princess.
