I've been reading a book I wish I would have started a long time ago. Bury Me Standing, so far, describes many of my students and what we observe in our church (located in the Roma neighborhood). It's really fun and I hope to gain more insight and respect for them as I continue pouring over it. And, I hope to share more along the way! Here are a few nuggets that stood out this morning:
"The more and the noisier the better was their creed" (p. 24-25).
"Practically, the whole neighborhood was related" (p. 24).
"Marriage came so early, for many before adolescence" (p. 32).
You're welcome to be a guest English-speaker in our class whenever you're in town!
Ciao for now,
P.S. They gave me permission to use these pictures, but please don't use them in any other way than sharing this blog post! Thanks!
