Today, the sky was full of Mexican women...

Perhaps I should explain that. Once, in Mexico, I met some women who were doing community work in the maquiladoras around Juar├ęz. Over the last ten or more years, women there have been disappearing at an alarming rate. Usually their bodies turn up in the desert, where other women's children would find them while scavenging for cans and scrap metal to sell. It's appalling and allowed to continue. These women were trying to do something about it.

I remember, me dijeron--Somos mujeres tan poderosas.

Today, the sky looked like it was full of power.... and it made me remember.
