In Memoriam Rio Grande

Odie Norquest and I attended a peaceful demonstration against the Border Wall last Sunday at the National Butterfly Center south of Mission. The event featured poetry, dance, music, art and no speeches by politicians. I saw my first drones which flew over us as we crossed the levee where the wall may be built. Odie saw some relatives and I saw some members of our congregation in McAllen.

I met a professor at the local medical school who is a member of the Episcopal congregation in Edinburg. He was happy to see someone wearing a clerical collar and is already getting me contacts in the local ecumenical and interfaith community.

This was perhaps the most peaceful demonstration I have ever experienced.
