My choice for reading about Honduras: Don’t Be Afraid, Gringo by Elvia Alvarado.
I had a draft post all set up and ready to go, but I just scratched it.
I’m an American, living in the USA, with the government of my country stopping people from Honduras at our border right now, ripping their children away, with no regard or understanding for what brought them here.
So, especially fellow Americans, here’s a book that you should read. It’s a story, straight from the source, about life in Honduras and the struggles that women face everyday as they fight for a more equitable existence. It gives you a direct, unfiltered line to meet someone’s humanity, at a time when the powers-that-be are trying very hard to turn you away from that.
