After Ed finished, the students walked through the house and looked at the art and artifacts collected from the trails. Then we settled in and looked at a slide show about art created from artifacts. Such visits mean a great deal to me. I am encouraged by the hope, curiosity and determination of students who come from across the country to learn about what happens on the Arizona border.
Below are images of Memorials from Calendars of Death, water jugs found along the trails and shoes found on the trails that had broken apart and were, unsuccessfully, repaired. These hang in our living room and remain a reminder that people walk through the desert south of Tucson everyday.
