I lived in this part of El Paso for years. Mom and Dad built a home here, my younger brother graduated from high school here, I raised my son here, I spent many hours at the Barnes & Noble here. I haunted Cielo Vista Mall. The stores, restaurants, and movie theater. When I bought a house, I had to move out of the area because I couldn't afford the homes in this area. I know this place like the back of my hand. I still go to this Walmart and the Sam's next door. A few short years ago I quit going to malls and most stores on Saturday. I could go during the week ... it was less crowded. I'm thankful for that today. Because if I was still going to malls, that's the one I would have been at.
I hope tomorrow is a better day.
