what a guy
if you remember the pregnant 17yo girl in my class. well her last day was last Friday, she's going back to Mexico. we have on the other hand two new students a brother and sister from Monterrey. I was talking about something sad in class last week and the students were actually talking which city was more dangerous Monterey or Juarez.. gee whiz. what happened sad last week was that two former students of mine in Honduras lost their mom. She was a human rights lawyer in the capitol city, and she was gunned down in her car along with her secretary and driver. Her 24 yo daughter's facebook post the next day was so said, saying "There is nothing, nothing in this world that prepares you for your mother's death. Absolutely nothing." she wrote a few days later how she hopes to be half the woman her mom was, also again that one of her mom's favorite songs was Noviembre sin Ti, and she had heard it last week on the radio. her brother at 26 had pics posted of him carrying the casket. tomorrow they'll have a big celebration of life. THey were/are such a wonderful Christian family, I remember running into the family all together at functions now and then. there's another younger sister also. The mom had actually been shot at before and was hospitalized years ago, yet she never stopped fighting for better things for that country. SO sad and what a heroine. anyway, the new students I have in class come from a really good educational background so we are looking forward to getting them caught up to the level of the rest of the class who've been here a couple months already. hope everyone had a good weekend.
