Remembering "Day of the Dead" Along the U.S.-Mexico Border

We lived in a farming community in the outskirts of Ciudad Juárez, not far from the Rio Grande, as it appeared in U.S. maps. In first grade, at the Escuela Rural Federal Primero de Mayo, we would learn it as Río Bravo del Norte. The towns of Ysleta, Socorro, and San Elizario, on the other side of the River, were familiar names from the many relatives who would visit us on weekends. One year they donated electric blankets, never mind that we had no electricity!
