Items of Note: A Facebook comment: A Warrior people who have never given up. We'll make it together. With the strength of the warrior heart, with the spirit of struggle inherited from our ancestors. With the good faith of everyone. With God as a guide. Let the bad vibes go with the debris and hope for hope. Cheer people. All for comerío..Gloria E. Barrios
