Today I experienced the splendor of the SJBS “Cena Navideña” (Christmas Dinner).
Grief is a powerful thing. It seeps in when you least expect it and can take over your entire body, mind and soul. It can make you feel isolated yet stifled, empty yet overcome with emotion, and at times completely and utterly lost.
To this day, whenever I need to divide by 3, 4, or 6, I run through times table songs that my dad taught me in 4th grade. He came into my 4th grade class in 1994 and taught my friends these songs and many of them still use them as well.
Silence is something that I have seldom experienced in Cofradia.
