Courage And Fear

About this photo:

El Salvador (March 2008) While visiting in the area of San Salvador I observed this wall, complete with a homemade deterrent for trespassers. Proof that it doesn't take wealth to solve every problem. This property owner needed only some broken bottles and a little concrete to make his property secure.
