Influenza porcina

Family and friends.
Our family here in Irapuato and Mexico City are fine. We are taking precautions, and staying at home as much as we can. Here in Irapuato there have been very few cases, and starting tomorrow until May 6, clases have been suspended in al the Mexican Republic. I thank you for all the e-mails sent asking for our state of health. We are hoping all is well with you also, and that this ends soon with no more victims here in Mexico or elsewhere.

We still had class today, and this is how our
students came to school to answer their
reading exam. Yes, he is smiling.
For most kids, this is no more then an
How I wish no child in our world
had to suffer any illness or hardship.

Since I won't be working for the next week, I'll have time to post some more Easter week photos.
Please, take care-

Oh, and there was no damage becuse of the 5.7 earthquake that shook Mexico City, beside some nervous cases.
Thanks again..

Angie, I was concerned that you hadn't posted in a few days but I more just thought you were laying low and feeling upset about all that is happening in Mexico. Sometimes the way things are in the press is not the way things really are. I'm glad you're all fine. It seems such a strange time of year for a flu outbreak--usually it's in the winter.

I will pray that the worst is over and everything will be back to normal soon.

Thank you for your prayers, Candace. Even though the percentage of people with the illness is low compared to the population, the quickness with which it is spreading is what has everyone worried. And of course, any decease means someone's parents or children are in mourning and it makes me sad. Besides that, we are well, and the school left us so much work to do during these days,it has me very busy. Thanks again, and I'll try to keep posting about this objectively. Stay well...
