You did not sensationalize the tragedy. Thank you.

My statement has validity because my husband was the same age as Miguel when I draped his favorite shirt over the casket before burial. It was eerily familiar seeing Marlene do something similar. That poor woman has four children and oppressive poverty to contend with, and a lifetime of sorrow without her husband. Thank you for bringing awareness of the suffering that results from a political situation that caused this to happen.

This phenomenon of migration is very sad, produces orphans, separated families, death.

The phenomenon of migration was not stopping there.
The images speak for if same.
