Everyday Miracles

By: Gabriela Yareliz

There are families that are separated through deportation, tragedies, need for survival, and unexpected events every day. No cell phones, no internet– and still, people manage to find each other.
They write letters in faith to places with addresses that consists of town rivers and the shack with the blue roof; they call the town public phone and neighbors… in crazy difficult situations, people still find each other, despite the obstacles.

Can you imagine that feeling when you get back in touch with a loved one after so long, when you aren’t first-world connected and wired, and after life seems to shuffle everyone around? It is basically nothing short of a miracle.

“Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.”― C.S. Lewis
