Wishing the Borderland Beat family a day filled with joy...............

Thank you to all the  BB readers for your kind expressions of concern.  I am down but not out, and improving each day.... Love you all, even the Millies and Willies. 


BIG thanks to my friend DD for holding down the fort.....Paz, Chivis



Each year I am given hundreds of "original art" Christmas cards made for me by the foundation children I work with.   What is striking to me, is the messages that are written on almost every card.  The same theme; no more bad guys, no more narcos, Zetas (or whatever cartel dominates their area) no more death of innocents, kidnappings, etc.  A perspective  by children who live in places of violence.


They wish for peace, they wish for children that are sick to receive health, children who are "poor" to receive a gift. They look  beyond themselves, although they themselves are poor, I work only with impoverished, marginalized and/or disabled children.  


Not one card in 11 years has ever wished for a toy, or gift for themselves.


No lessons needed for these children, they have mastered the meaning of Christmas

      I asked Chivis a while back and she said it was another BB contributor's profile pic (face was covered) that mistook as hers.

    6. Yes, it is me a selfie I took last month on thanksgiving. There were two others one I am wearing a Borderland Beat Cap and another on a post I wrote announcing I am no longer going to post and just remain administrator for BB...Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Remember to celebrate the New Year sanely and safely.....

  12. Feliz Navidad Chivis, Thank you so much for all you've done to help us understand what's going on in Mexico. When my friends were carjacked on cuoto just out of Mazatlan, I discovered Borderland Beat. I choose to not to have the blinders on and can thus share with Mexicans and other North Americans what I've learned. I have the greatest respect and admiration for what you've accomplished.

    I laugh with all these positive comments, when in pasts posts people would say negative stupid stuff. Now they saw the real chivis, her work and all the things that she's done to help the people. Finally those negative milies will stop!
