La Bestia

La Bestia

Imagine being 7 or 12 or 15 and being afraid to leave your house for school, play, errands, life. Imagine your parents equally frightened, desperate, being forced to leave you or send you away in a scramble to help you survive. No parent, no child would undertake the very dangerous journey across borders to an unknown, hazardly mounting a train called la bestia — the beast. Economic, political injustice pushes children out. Injustice sends them back.

I learn and am inspired by your comments!
