Hear It And Weep...

I've posted on this before (on the prior incarnation of this blog), and there is now an absolute plethora of information available. That said- we are still no closer to ending this orchestrated mass killing which continues to this day. It is the sad and tragic story that is Ciudad Juarez, a story of extreme violence, corruption, and everyday murder fueled by rampant drugs and a global economy hell bent on squeezing out every last penny human life can possibly offer.

Visit it during the day for a few hours (as I did) and other than the usual poverty of a developing country, you may leave unaware that anything more's amiss. Walk its streets as a citizen, and the light of day will not protect you from the evil that both surrounds and terrorizes its very heart.
