This Sunday Jan. 31 at 4 p.m. CST, Azul will come to us from Mexico where she's visiting her mother. They will sing together because it has been a while since they have and now they can! The Virus touched Azul's family in Mexico a few weeks ago and it made its way closer to her mother. Masks and social distancing work!  This Sunday is a celebration of being together in song via Facebook live.

Poetry is one of humanity’s oldest forms of expression and can be used to create deep connections between poets and the worlds they inhabit. Teachers and other community members also use poetry to connect people who feel displaced. A unique project in San Antonio is using poetry to celebrate World Refugee Day and to create myriad connections for displaced people. Refugees flee from their home countries to preserve their lives and seeking liberty and hoping to find happiness through peace.
