"" I recorded a part of the phone call, and Mima didn't know it. So her voice would never become extinct." "
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life - Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Sal's Mima was like this mother when he was growing up and now, she is dying from cancer.  Sal keeps everything inside for Sal is a thinker, he ponders and the list of questions inside his head grows daily.  This quote stopped me dead in my tracks when I read it, thank you Sal for taking a positive stance.
