Ed and I arrived in San Fernando, CA Saturday evening and are being hosted at a convent a few miles from the school. Sister Sara Goggin has been helpful in orienting us to the neighborhood and the school. Here are images from the hours we spent setting up the display.
David Lara, his wife "McCoi" and three young men whom David had taken to Tucson and who had all walked the migrant trails and visited shelters in MX, pitched in to help. They worked for hours unpacking, sorting and arranging the artifacts. Kindly, Don Levan, the director of worship at the High School, bought us all a pizza and we were able to sit and share stories about their experiences at the US-MX Border and the feelings elicited by handling the items.
