Letter: Matter of Conscience

November 11, 2019

It was Martin Luther King, Jr. who counseled us about the voices that matter in our times of need. “In the end,” he said, “we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.” Sometimes, it is an incessant whisper that reminds us of our obligation to speak out. At other times, that obligation hits us between the eyes like a truncheon. We ...

On the Other Side of the Border

November 7, 2019

The children kept hugging us. They just wanted hugs. They wanted to be seen, to be loved, to feel safe. It’s odd — we teach our children to not talk to strangers, and yet when we entered the Shelter de Leona Vicario they ran to us, grabbed our hands and wanted to play. My Spanish is limited and their English was non-existent, but they kept telling us their names ...

Sewer Inspections – Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late
