One of the nice things about Las Vegas is it's location relative to other destinations. To our east we have Utah, which has hiking, camping, fishing, and outdoor fun. To our west we have California. which has beaches and theme parks. And to our south there is New Mexico and Mexico. This weekend I took a trip down to Baja, Mexico and stayed on the beach. I could say a lot about the whole experience, but want to keep my comments brief. So I will say Mexico has many issues that make me concerned for their people, but they are blessed like so many of us with a beautiful land. The image of footprints on the sand is a classic Christian image, which reminds me of the poem entitled "Footprints in the Sand" written by Mary Stevenson. The image taken on Mexican shores represents hope for all people in difficult times.
