We who are nurtured en conjunto and are moved in our becoming by the stories, shared experiences, and memories of our ancestors, let us not forget the millones de pisadas pressed on the surface of this Earth where we wandered, wondered, and journeyed without human-made borders. Through the many shifts and reconfigurations of our modern societies, let us seek and desire a relationality that fosters collective flourishing in order to sustain a cycle that humanizes each other and embraces with sacred curiosity our lived experiences.
