    LA Youth Fast For Central American Youth

    Jul 25, 2014

    Michael Lozano

    The fasters say they see themselves in the migrating children. Some of them, too, fled to the U.S. to escape violence in their native country. “I was just like these kids 12 years ago,” said one, who left Guatemala in 2002 after her father was killed as a result of gang violence. “I didn’t run from my country because I wanted to. I had to.”

We later learned the victims were two local kids killed after trying to run away from gang members who were chasing them. It was 2006. A month later I left El Salvador and headed north for the US.
