We walked to the front of the Detention Center and stood, chanting and holding our signs. The mothers and women used bull horns to speak of their pain and their solidarity with those on the other side of the wire. As we walked the length of the prison compound, some one shouted "look in the windows". There we could see red and white sheets waving. We were being heard by the inmates. Those inside, many of whom are on an ongoing hunger strike, heard us and knew we care. They are not alone and they will not be forgotten.
A small group of brave people stood before the barbed wire, in the sun and shared their courage and hope with men and women we could not see. It was very moving. A morning I will not forget.
