my elementary/middle school friend just posted this… it’s where we came up! My best friend lived adjacent to the playground and I a block away. The friend who posted this lives in Lexington, KY, my best friend in Vienna, Austria, and I…. here. The mind explodes. We were not privileged kids and we learned resilience mostly from each other, mostly through running around and climbing on things and when older, sitting on the swings, chatting, smoking cigarettes stolen from our parents, spending time together till curfew time.
Sometimes I think that because our parents lived most of their lives under communist rule in an extremely restricting environment, they handed down their desire to escape for a better, more free existence to us and when we could do it we all went for it. It’s just a thought.

What is ironic, though, is that these Central American countries are not supposed to be at the center of such a regional calamity once again. In the 1980s, Central America was a battlefield of the Cold War, where military rulers, guerrillas, counter-revolutionaries and foreign forces fought over the future of the isthmus. In the early 1990s, far-reaching political transitions, wrought by successful peace agreements, created expectations that these poverty-stricken countries would somehow flourish as vibrant democracies and thriving market economies.

Afterward, Mr. Sanabria noted that he often had to explain the Bronx’s musical contributions to those who did not know about them, including young people, immigrants and those from outside the borough.

Now, he said, he is simply going to tell them, “Go to the Freeman Street subway stop, walk down the stairs and you’ll hear what came out of the Bronx.”
