UCA, Romero and San Salvador

We visited Oscar Romero's tomb today along with the site of his killing his residence as well as the Jesuit University where the Jesuit priests were killed by the military during the war.
Our first day is full of memories of war. This is very important in setting context for the rest of our trip. We will be living with people who have lived through the conflict and have risen from the ashes. The community of San Jose Las Flores is living in the moment and building for the future. We need to know about the conflicts, the tragedies but we will not remain in the past, we will learn from it.
