Medical mission a success for local nurse practioner

By Meagan Moore

One Silsbee resident has finally crossed off an item on her bucket list as she was able to travel to Nabaj, Quiche for a medical mission trip put on by a foundation for Via Toro, which was developed by his son, Samuel, because of forced disappearance.

Forced disappearance was huge in that area during the 80’s to people who spoke up against the government or the work place environment, and it happened to Samuel’s father who was found in a mass grave. Since the 1980’s, 45,000 people have been kidnapped or murdered, and this foundation is trying to raise awareness and give back to those communities that do not have the daily luxuries that Americans take for granted.

Some Silsbee left in Ireland

Meagan Moore, the reporter at The Silsbee Bee, visited Ireland with her father, Harlan Moore, and brought along some rocks painted by Silsbee natives Brenda Kendrick and Sally Stanley.

The first day of their arrival was a little rough, with both of their luggage missing, but the trip made up for the small hiccup.

The first rock was left at the airport in London where they had an hour and 40 minute layover before continuing on to Dublin. While in Dublin, Moore and her father visited Guiness Storehouse, Dublin Castle, and even visited her Irish friend, whom she met at college at Lamar University. It was their first time riding any sort of public transport such as a local double-decker bus that drove down the roads like it owned it.
