Service, Part II
Wed. 15/7/15- it is 4:48 in the morning and feeling more relaxed. The past three days has been more than what words can say. Words can come short when the experience goes beyond what you can say with words.
Most of the messages we have shared with you in the past five years are less than five hundred words. We have shared more than a hundred messages with you that average between four hundred words. This particular style of writing caught my attention from the letters that Madiba wrote from prison. He was given orders not to use more than five hundred words to write his letters and this can only happen every six months.
Our most recent message was Service which we shared with you on July 8th 2015 and so far it has 516 words.
We would like to share the first paragraph with you that have the following message, Wed. 8/7/15- It is 6:48 in the morning and we are being encouraged by what has unfolded so far. Yesterday Bro Julian Arana provided us with a manuscript of a demand on behalf of the residence living in the town of Labuga in regards to the tragedy that took place on the 4th July 2015.The town of Labuga is organizing a meeting today to evaluate the petition in Barrio San Jose at 4:00 in the evening.
The meeting that took place a week ago today with the different entities living in Labuga will have a continuation scheduled for 8:30 this morning and we are hoping to be there. What we hope to do is to serve the cause.
Thurs 16/7/15 it is 5:52 in the morning and we are looking for the right words. In this case, we are dealing with a statement that we had in mind before the meeting yesterday at the head quarters of ONEGUA.
A statement of this nature “What we hope to do is to serve the cause,” it will allow us to take a second look at the situation and condition of our people in Guatemala. The tragic incident that took place on the 4th July 2015 has brought our attention to that moment. It could have been any of us along with our love ones on a water taxi on our way to Puerto Barrios.
The meeting at the headquarters of ONEGUA yesterday from our point of view is a step towards the right directions.
Fri. 17/7/15- It is 4:40 in the morning and for the most part did not sleep well last night due to the impact of two events that unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday. First was a report from the commissioner of CICIG. The other has to do with the actual situation as far as the rights of parents and rights of the children as far as their education is concern.
Yesterday Guatemala was in the public eye because of a report from CICIG. Therefore it will be three months in a few days since we first saw the actual Ambassador of the United Sates Todd Robinson on national television expressing his point of view about the extension of CICIG in Guatemala for another two years.
Elections in Guatemala are less than fifty days away and we as Garinagu should be aware of the reality of our People in Guatemala.
More than ninety percent of the teachers in the public schools of Labuga have not had classes in more than two weeks and there is a possibility that this may continue for the rest of the school year. We were in a meeting yesterday at the public school of Justo Rufino Barrios in Labuga with one of three teachers who have put the rights of the Children and Parents into consideration before their own. We are saying this because; when you are a teacher with vocation you know that your place is in the classroom.
