Though I’ve striven to keep attention on Ukraine’s invasion, things are happening on this side of the world that needs our attention as well. Namely, there are changes, some swift, others subtle, happening south of our border. Things we thought were steadfast aren’t anymore. For example, assuming every Latin American is Catholic is not true anymore. In fact, it hasn’t been true for quite some time. What’s also becoming apparent is that Mexico’s political trajectory is heading into a direction that the US was able to avert with the 2020 election. Time will tell if there’s enough political will for the same to happen in Mexico; The US economy shrank and the economy is slowing, and while most average Americans are feeling the hit there’s group(s) who are reaping off the misery; Heard of all those over-zealous parents who want to protect everyone’s children by deeming which books should be banned in schools? Oddly, those books happen to be about LGBTQ children or some books by authors of color. Well, Latino authors are fighting back and will be caravanning to fight book bans; Don’t like how anyone can find info on you via Google? Now, you can do something about it; and Scientists deliver an apocalypytic warning for ocean species. Go beyond the headlines…
