Can you hear the drums Fernando?
Do you still recall the frightful night
we crossed the Rio Grande?
I can see it in your eyes
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land
(lyrics from Abba's "Fernando")
July 3rd, McAllen, Texas
The wait is over. The day long anticipated is here. Today is the day more than 100 Pastors for Peace volunteers will attempt to cross into Reynosa, Mexico, with nearly 100 tons of humanitarian aid destined for Cuba in defiance of a 47 year old U.S. blockade of that island nation. Their goal is not just to break that blockade. Their goal is to end it forever.
