Mexico, Sickness and Health

November 9th, 2004 · No Comments · Writing

I just got back from Tijuana yesterday. I joined a team to make a house for a family living there. The organization that we worked for supervises low-income housing projects, they realize that the need is bigger than they are, but have a mission to help one family at a time. I was expecting to make more of a shelter, but the end product was a complete two room house with a concrete floor and trussed roof.

I got back yesterday and became ill. I think it was a combination of the work, the anxiety of our show this weekend, and a McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin. I’m better now but shaky. I cried last night because of how much I have and how much the family in Tijuana doesn’t. You just have to see it to understand.
