Maria F. Loya

Editor's note: Maria F. Loya’s very personal and intimate account of Mexico’s social and political development was written in response to the violent activities of police forces against peaceful protesters in Mexico City in November 2014 and is translated from Spanish by Laura G. Scheriau, The Mantle’s Arts & Culture Editor.

The past several months I have been traveling in Central Europe, just enough away from the United States to feel slightly out of the proverbial loop. Back stateside, I am usually found beneath a stack of novels consisting of copies in need of review or for mere pleasure (although, usually the former), all the while trying to fit in my own angst-ridden fiction.

I was clear throughout this campaign, and have been clear throughout this transition, that under my administration the United States does not torture. We will abide by the Geneva Conventions. That we will uphold our highest values and ideals...it is important for us to do that not only because that’s who we are, but ultimately will make us safer.   - Barack Obama, January 9, 2009
