This month I had the privilege of visiting the city of El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. As one of the keynote speakers at the Trauma and Resilience in the Border Land Conference I was able to see and hear first-hand stories of what is happening at the Border. What I witnessed is both horrifying and brilliant. As a Canadian who lives very far from the US/Mexican Boarder, I have been shown terrible images that depict a very clear racism.
