We are neighbors.
We are friends.
We are family.
State and national borders separate Las Cruces, El Paso, and Juárez; but we are one community in many ways. There are short physical distances between us. However, there are friendships, business associations, and family ties that bring us even closer.
What hurts one of us, hurts all of us.
We stand together and mourn the losses in our community, in our family.
