CNN ran a story about one of the refugees in the caravan from Central America. I think her name was Gina Hernandez but my memory is trash now. Anyway, near the end, she describes how overwhelming it was to, after a month of fear and anxiety and misery and illness for her and her kids and hunger, finally see the border with her own eyes. I thought of the line, "Paradise is a place, you can see it when it's yours," and bam, the tears went. It's quite a line because it means several things and there are different tones you can attach to it. Gina could see the border but it wasn't hers. We'll see if it will be.
