Bullet Holes and page 3

I went to El Salvador in 1990 with CISPES as the civil war there was ending.

In San Jose Los Flores, the church was decorated with bullet holes. There hadn’t been a fight, just a church that the Government soldiers had shot up. Christians were Communists in those days. I guess the Rev. Wright would understand. The people just lived, with these holes, but when a plane went overhead they watched very carefully. I spent two days doing portraits of almost every little kid in the town and the bullet holes sat behind me. My tax dollars at work.

I find Breccia’s bullet holes chilling.
