‘Charity’ A Mexican Trilogy Comes Of Age; Latin Life Denver Review

There is an envelope that rests on the living room table. Emiliano’s parents can’t bring themselves to open it. It contains the value of their son’s life as determined by him. They don’t want to know, so it just rests there day after day. Family portraits grace the living room mantle. Emilianos photo stands out with him in his military uniform proudly standing at attention. In in one of the picture frames there are flashes of the Twin Towers on fire in New York City after the 9/11 attack. Pope John Paul II has just died and the family watches on TV as the world mourns.
