Viva Nuevo Mexico (VIII)

I was watching the local news last night. I should do this more often. I miss out on so many potential stories to put on here.

For example, on Good Friday there is a pilgrimage to Chimayo, a town which is about 30 miles or so north of Santa Fe. People walk there from all over northern New Mexico. It's a pretty interesting thing. Well anyway, one of the news stations was talking to pilgrims and asking them what they were praying for this year at the church in Chimayo. They talk to one young woman who says "I am praying that my father stays healthy. He's at home right now watching my son and I pray that he will be here until I am old enough to get married."
