Ode to EL Paso~Written August 6, 2019 By LORIE ANN JERMOUNE
EL Paso, EL Paso- What happened to you? Makes no sense to me... EL Paso, EL Paso your geography and logistics original, authentic and unique.
I can't wrap my mind around what transpired on Saturday, August 3, 2019. Unprompted, unprovoked and also devastating and hurtful are just a few words that come to my mind when I acknowledge the tragedy in my humble hometown, EL Paso.
Why would anybody want to devastate a city that has formed such a pivotal union of cultural diversity,loving acceptance and wonderful agriculture?
Dating back to my Spanish ancestors, EL Paso is quite a place for immigrants to visit, especially those that really loved the geography, weather and breathtaking mountain views and wonderful smells of bakery bread or fresh fruit. They left it behind, but not in their hearts and not in their minds.
We have a beautiful collusion of Spanish, French, Moors, Native Americans and more that lay to claim to its origin.
We are El Paso strong, El Paso unique and ask you to come visit our amazing Franklin Mountains, EL Paso Mission Trail, historic museums, delightful, traditional Mexican music, culture and food, and wonderful scenic and aerial views.
It's never a hassle to live in EL Paso, no matter what the country songs or soft-rock songs portray.
Whether outlaws are reeling in or just passing through- it's the pass of the north- EL PASO, that they are visiting.
We ask them to show their respect to our people and amazing culture,and its proximity to other places . AND all of this glory is within a stones throw view of another logistical area or two.
. One can drive along the I-10 freeway going east from west and bear witness to another economy, another way of life, another country, and another type of living.
A very humbling, different and distinct view of Ciudad, Juarez, Mexico, yet only a stone's throw away from our Texas part of the freeway and our main university- University of Texas at EL Paso.
We ask you to show us your love whether a visitor,or if you plan on staying, please be as kind to us as we are to you!
We are a peaceful town. We mean others nor ourselves any malice or harm. Please send out the alarm- we are here to welcome you to the great southwest with open arms and loving hearts of gratitude. It's the tourists that make us sparkle, shine and keep us and our economy in the black and not in the red and for that and more we thank you for your patronage.
Whether a visitor,or if you plan on staying come one come all; we are a peaceful town; we are a remarkable city. We conduct our lives at a slower pace. BUT OHHH..
DON’T let that fool you~ we are alert, aware and always willing to embrace the hurt, downtrodden or just the humble visitor passing through. Our amazing Mexican food, culture and mountain views will take your breath away!
So many songs have either been written or otherwise mentioned this beautiful city in our amazing Texas state.
We are called the pass-of-the-north of course, for our location, as you pass the mountain onward to
another city, country or state. We border between Texas, New Mexico and the Chihuahua, Mexico and the United States.
This article is not to give attention to the maleficent crime,but to let the world realize the true strength of the
failed attempt to harden our hearts, or to place a hammer on our way relaxed way of life, love of life, and love for all of our local global and noble sisters and brothers alike.
We legally will welcome all within our borders,regardless of nationality, race, religion, creed or color. We are El Paso strong, proud and united like NONE OTHER!
May those who have lost their lives and those friends and relatives left behind be soothed with the peace of Yahweh.
Rest assured in the understanding and knowledge that you are loved and that Yahweh has HIS hands on you, your city
and state and on the proud countries of Mexico and these UNITED STATES! UNITED WE STAND-AND DIVISIVE AND DIVIDED WE FALL!
