I know, it is an image most sites would not like to show you. But it is a daily reality here in Guatemala. We inherited a society with many deep issues and thus far we have failed to correct them. I’ve reflected on this scenery multiple times. I have to commute to Guatemala City several times per week and when possible I do provide help. Some times I realize my help is obsolete and never will be enough; I can empty my entire bank account on them and nothing will change.
We as a society have failed to provide an answer to this (among many other) issue, or at least to recognize that not addressing it makes us less civilized, less humane, less human.
