LIGHT OF HOPE

The light of hope.
Hundreds of runners meet at Mexico City, at The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. They run for 4,000 miles to reach downtown Manhattan on December 12 for the celebration of the virgin Mary.
The runners, some who had been deported, run to hopefully be reunited with their families. There has been cases of family reunification since 2002. The worshippers hope that the government officials see the “light” of their community so they may be recognized in this country.
