It was a sultry evening in Tijuana as the sun was dropping quickly and the moon was rising. The boy, Arrango, calmly continued to play his accordion with songs by Chalino Sanchez. He was trying to collect money for his family because his mother was in the hospital and his father was an alcoholic. Arrango was the oldest of 3 children and had to support them all. The sounds of the accordion mixed with the honking of traffic and the conversations of people mingling in the street. Arrango's brother fell asleep a little while ago to the sweet sound of the accordion. Arrango is worried about his father and his family because they were in need of money. This happened a year ago. Since then, Arrango hasn't been the same. Now he knows about the real tragic effects of poverty. He longs for his fingers to stop hurting and for his family to become rich so he won't have to play his accordion for change any more.
