Oxford Bride

Just came back on Sunday  from my trip to London. I took a lot of photographs, about 2,000 and from all of them I had trouble choosing which one to post first.

This trip has many meanings to me, many perspectives, many reasons. I always wanted to go to London and see the city, but couldn’t find the time, the means.

Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you.

When Mexicans crossed our border to feed Americans in need

I had almost forgotten about this news, here a reminder from the Washington Post.

August 28

Stephen R. Kelly, a former U.S. diplomat who served in Mexico from 2004 to 2006, teaches at the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University.

In a scene that would have given Donald Trump heart palpitations, 200 flag-waving Mexican troops breached the U.S. border outside Laredo, Tex., 10 years ago and advanced unopposed up Interstate 35 to San Antonio.

It was the first time a Mexican army had marched on San Antonio since 1836 when Gen. Santa Ana massacred besieged Texas independence fighters at the Alamo.

This time, however, the Mexican soldiers were on a relief mission…..
