Sunday Meditation: Women of Juarez

For today's contemplation we suggest an excerpt from Marjorie Agosin's Secrets in the Sand, a poetic tribute to the hundreds of women of Juarez who have been murdered and whose deaths have not been properly investigated so that perptrators are brought to justice. Agosin is well known for her poems about strong women (see Melodious Women). Here's another of her poems.

For further reflection we suggest exploring Amnesty's Bordertown (a forthcoming feature film on the women of Juarez) resources, where among other things you can find mp3 and video downloads and a petition.
