Violent acts are not repeated

Good afternoon son, a pleasure to meet you, I am someone who over time has been forgotten, but in my name I carry suffering itself: Cruz Eladio. Eladio is a common name, but Cruz means suffering. Christ suffered and died on the cross (cruz) and although I have a Spanish gentleman’s surname I don’t count in this life any more. In the end what matters isn’t who I am but why I am here. I am dead, and the violence killed me.

ALIVE! A word that that can be cried out with such relief by those who are somehow still breathing after such a dreadful war. Today, we cry out with a new cry and it’s not one of anguish, pain and suffering, but the opposite, now our town breathes in happiness, peace and hope.
