RIPS UP BORDERS 

 

Bienvenido a mi blog

 

Y únete a mí en un viaje que destruye las fronteras

 

I really wanted the title of this website to be both in Spanish and English to represent the intertwining of two worlds.  The title is also based off of one of my

 

favourite quotes in one of my favourite books, Tattoos on the Heart: the power of boundless compassion, written by Gregory Boyle (which is a great read if

 

you haven't read it yet).

“No daylight to separate us.

Only kinship.

Inching ourselves closer to creating a community of kinship such that God might recognize it. Soon we imagine, with God, this circle of compassion.

 

Then we imagine no one standing outside of that circle, moving ourselves closer to the margins so that the margins themselves will be erased. We stand there

 

with those whose dignity has been denied. We locate ourselves with the poor and the powerless and the voiceless. At the edges, we join the easily despised

 

and the readily left out. We stand with the demonized so that the demonizing will stop. We situate ourselves right next to the disposable so that the day will

 

come when we stop throwing people away.”
