visiting Guatemala

June 14, 2011

I saw many things in Guatemala.
I saw beautiful things.
I only met wonderful kind caring people.
I also saw poverty.
Houses….No check that;Homes, family’s Homes clinging to the sides of mountains.
Mountains that see rain nearly everyday. Mudslides are common.
Peoples homes just slipping down a hill….common.
Imagine coming home today and your house has slipped down into the road…some of your family was in your house. Now what?
I saw a 12 year old girl selling flowers with her baby sister on her back as I drove to the airport.
People just taking care of their families the best way they know how.

    All true. A constant intersection of beauty with poverty and love with violence.
