On Dia de Los Muertos we honor those we've lost.
I honor my grandmother, who crossed the border as a child.
I also honor Jakelin, Juan, Felipe, Mariee, Carlos, Darlyn, and Wilmer. They too crossed the border as children, but died in U.S. custody. https://t.co/md2daccGHc

If the Halloween spirits didn’t get you, you can start celebrating El Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, in which migrating monarch butterflies sometimes represent the souls of ancestors who have died and are a spiritual journey.

The Mexican holiday of Día de Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is celebrated over three days.
This figurine was made in the 1980s for the festival. It is created entirely from sugar paste and icing, which is decorated with gold and purple foil https://t.co/GOiddkmEzA pic.twitter.com/zfAispA6rz
