Diva challenge 323 - Home
Diva Laura invites us this week to explore in tangles our feelings about our home. I am a U.S. citizen, but for more than 23 years, Nicaragua has been my adopted home. And the thing I love most here is the solidarity, the sense of community. Individuals are very diverse here -- in many ways, Nicaragua is not a country of conformists. Some people are beautiful, some are prickly. But by and large poor Nicaraguans stand up for each other, and they stand up for me. For example, you won't see anyone living on the streets here because if a person is homeless, someone will take them in. And Nicaragua is full of color -- the flowers, the birds, the art, people's clothing, the culture, people's personalities. I could go on, but those are a few of the thoughts that were on my mind as I tangled this tribute to Nicaraguan solidarity.
