Napoleon shows his wounds from the last four days, traveling by foot from the southern border of Mexico to Chauhuites, Oaxaca. 4 days prior, the Salvadoran man, while accompanying his 17 year old son on his journey to the US, stopped to ask a local for water. The woman instead threw boiling water at him. The next day, he and his son were stripped, robbed, and assaulted. They managed to escape with their lives, but the memory and machete to Napoleon’s hand still serve as reminders. August 3rd, 2015 photo by Janice Amaya
