eyes to their future
desire to learn. help me now
These beautiful children lived in my neighborhood when I lived in Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
Many of them will never get an education.
Just follow the family tradition, marry and have a family. The tradition carries on from generation to generation. But life is changing. Opportunity for education is available.

this is also my plea...
I wanna grow up. I want to meet a nice boy. Maybe he will date me, not rape me. I wanna leave this island, go to college and learn how to use the computer, balance a checkbook, play the piano, paint huge portraits, meet a nice boy, go to the opera, see Europe and visit the United States. I wanna wear a pretty dress. My body is mine, it is not yours to use and abuse. I am beautiful, inside and out. I wanna grow up. ~ by Deb Taylor~
