Awed to be in their midst: Susie Sanders asked Rebecca Garcia, a GVS Samaritan, to share impressions from the mid-day meal at Caballo Loco Ranch, southwest of Three Points. The lunch was provided by our Sams group for the 2017 Migrant Trail participants on June 2nd. Sixty-five walkers, some of whom have walked this 7-day, 75-mile trek from Sasabe to Tucson for 14 years, participated to commemorate those migrants who have lost their lives crossing the desert.
Rebecca said: "There were so many people there who just blew my mind and heart away with their long histories of dedicated action on this issue. I mostly walked around feeling awed to be in their midst, amazed by the stamina and sacrifice of the hikers and forgot all about my camera! Next year I hope for better documentation at least and possibly greater personal involvement. Wouldn't it be awesome to hike with them on the first and last days, just for example? I'm inspired to do that (at least), plus the luncheon again, too.”
