Share the Wealth: “Quiero ver” (Let me see), with Ale Vazquez

by Mark Chmiel

“There are many things that can only be seen through eyes that have cried.”
Oscar A. Romero

I will be reflecting on a semester in El Salvador during which I learned how to love others and love myself through the relentless bombardment of unconditional love and hugs. I’ll be reflecting, also, on the teachings of Oscar Romero in light of the anniversary of his martyrdom (March 24) and how they became a large part of my understanding of accompanying the poor.  On paper, I am third-year student at Saint Louis University studying Public Health and international studies. In reality, I spend a lot of time doodling, writing poems, and reminiscing on those Salvadorans who changed the lens through which I see the world.
