Dear sisters

I don't have a poem or story about it (yet) but I feel awful about and am constantly sending prayers up and out to the women from Central America who go through extremely harrowing experiences to get into this country. Eighty percent (at least) are raped and are assaulted in other sexual ways by guides also known as coyotes, gangs and some officials. Yes. Many women take shots as birth control to prevent pregnancies. Assaults that happen in the desert stay there because who ya gonna call? What authorities you gonna report to? Nobooooodaaay! These are our sisters. Our mothers and grandmothers, nieces and friends. We are these women. We are the world, right?
