View from the Other Side

Sunday's St. Petersburg Times offered a perspective on immigration that I hadn't seen before. "A Cross They Can't Bear" by Mary Spicuzza describes what it's like for families in Mexico who have already lost loved ones trying to cross the border into the U.S. and now wonder if other relatives have survived the trip. Spicuzza shows us the life of Laura Teresa Gomez, who anxiously waits in her impoverished Oaxaca home to find out whether her husband has lived through the dangerous journey north. Kathleen Flynn's wonderful photos add more heart to the story.
