BORDERLANDS: The Rosary on the Migrant Trail

A traditional Catholic rosary consists of five decades, totaling 59 beads, and a crucifix on a cord. Within the past year 58 bodies where recovered from the Sonoran desert in the vicinity of Ajo, Arizona, 42 miles north of the US/Mexico border. Humanitarian aid organizations estimate that for every body recovered, at least five are not. The remote nature of borderlands and the natural conditions accelerate decomposition.  59 bodies, 58 beads.

On 12 June, the world commemorates the World Day Against Child Labour.* The focus of this international observance is to raise awareness and strengthen efforts to prevent child labour. According to the data of the International Labour Organization, more than 168 million of children around the world are forced into work that "deprives them of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development."**
