when the wind blows

The wind has been blowing in the past few days. At times it is a threatening and at times it is almost soothing. If you've ever lived on the Chesapeake Bay you'll know that strong wind that makes a loud rushing whistling sound through all the house. If you leave a crack in the window the wind will get to be so strong that it will wake you up (and I'm a deep sleeper usually). I love it! Everything is so cool and fresh when the wind blows.

Last week I went to the Museo de la Palabra y de la Imagen. It is a small museum that is doing its part in helping to preserve the memories of the Civil War in El Salvador. The conflict is so complex, all sides were convinced that they were defending a righteous cause and everyone was corrupted in some way or another by the atrocity that is war. The thing that fascinates me is how the country continues to be passionately polarized. I hope that they will be able to continue to grow in peace and freedom into the future.

Didn't you tell us the civil war was in the '80s? I can see why people would be passionate about something that recent, something that happened during the lifetime of the adults.
