Today is Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration of life, a traditional way for the living to affirm their love for those who have passed away… We carry in our hearts the memories and dreams of all who have walked beside us in the journey of life. So long as we remember with love and honor, the dead never really die.

I’ll be celebrating the life of my mother, great-grandparents, grandfather, other friends and family members, and those who have lost their lives in the desert and at the Wall in many processions this weekend.
