Humanity Prevails

This weekend I was driving in Juarez and came across two police vehicles, an ambulance, and several cars blocking two lanes of the road. Normally when you see this particular arrangement of vehicles in Juarez the worst possible scenario immediately comes to mind. As I passed the cluster of vehicles I looked over and rather than the horrific scene I had braced myself for, I saw a group of people gathered around an injured dog. As horrible as I felt for the injured dog I had to smile knowing that despite all this city has been through the violence inflicted on Juarenses has not extinguished their humanity.  I'm so very proud and lucky that I get to live amongst such wonderful and resilient people.
