Facebook update from Desmond:
Today in El Salvador we visited the site of where the Jesuits were massacred on November 16, 1989, where Romero was murdered on March 24, 1980, and saw the wall of names of those murdered and disappeared – it contains 32,000 of the known names. The official government list is 75,000. Human Rights organizations estimate the number to be over 100,000…. see the rest https://www.facebook.com/collin.ebel.1?ref=ts&fref=ts#!/desmond.jaggerparsons?fref=ts
