 Ricardo Aparicio fled for the United States after fighting for the military. His mother, having her house bombed and her eyes infected from the smoke of burning bodies, was there waiting for him. He has been deported twice.  His son, Anthony Aparicio, said, "In my dreams I would see my dad and run to him. Then I would blink and he was gone. I would just lie on the ground and cry."

  Doris Galicia describes her brain as having two significant and discrete parts. The first mind, she says, is for everyday tasks—this is for the three jobs she works, for the 2-4 hour nights of sleep, for the bus route to the grocery store. Her second mind, she says, is for the other things. This is where she keeps the time she was taken into the mountains by the guerilla forces, the heads she saw on top of poles, the bombs that she ran from, and the morning that she found her uncle and his whole family had been slaughtered over night. Its in this mind that she can remember how they looked—how they were on the floor, how they were all touching each other.
