An Expression of Faith
After photographing the emotional reaction of this man, José Acosta, to a hope-filled sermon at the migrant shelter, @sydneyzuckerman_news
and I had the pleasure of interviewing him about his experience as part of the caravan. José informed us that he left behind his wife and his five children in Honduras when he joined the caravan in search of better work. He explained that, like many others, any job that he worked in Honduras paid so little that he was unable to support his family even while working long hours.
When asked ask if he had a message to share with citizens/residents of the United States, José responded (translated by me): “Please listen to your conscience. The truth is that we [Hondurans] are people that want to do the right thing. We have been struggling, working, walking because we have no choice. If you have humanity, please help us cross the border. We are really just honest people that want to work, we are not criminals”
