In the Time of the Butterflies

Why does Dedé laugh uneasily when the interviewer asks, “And where are you?” as she looks at the photos? What is the symbolism of the photos of the three sisters?

Dede laughs a little because there is so much history and intense emotion to relate. The photo's represent her family's struggle and loss. The photos represent the pleasure and the pain, the sacred and the profane. There is so much love and loss that flows through her history.
