(Y-9) 39 days… bright spots

This was a really good weekend, I did some really cool things with my wife and kids, but one thing, in particular, took the whole cake.

Let me start by saying that it is no secret that my fair city, Ciudad Juárez, suffers an extreme problem of violence.

In 2009 this grave problem reaches its peak and all of its citizens suffered the consequences, business closed, the streets were deserted and a mournful vibe covered the entire city.

Biblioteca Independiente Ma’ Juana open 7 years ago with the sole purpose of bringing a save haven for children, a place where they can escape the crude violence and, through reading and the magic of books, learn that another type of life and society.

With hard work and a lot of love it’s two founders, Ana Laura Ramirez and Susana Baez, keep fighting the good fight, and for that, we are really grateful.

As part of this celebration, they presented a couple of children’s book.

 

I’ll post later this evening a few pictures of the books.

Happy Readings!!!
