Day 10 – Blessed be the One who Comes in the Name of the Lord

When I knew very little Spanish, this older one said my eyes were celeste, the blue of heaven. Forever after, I knew the value of cognates. I already knew the supreme value of children, all of them.

Yesterday, I saw a meme of two exquisitely beautiful boys. Each had journeyed by himself to a border. The light-skinned one was deemed a hero; the brown-skinned one was locked in a cage.

When the war began, I wondered, how will this too reflect institutional racism?
