Mon. 8/2/16- It is 4:31 in the morning and has been searching for the right “words” to fit the occasion.
You see, just a few days ago, while we were watching a talk show, it was mentioned that Thelma Aldana of Guatemala, can be a possible candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize.
On the other hand, we just to through reading Dr. Martin Luther King’s discourse in Oslo in 1964 when he received the Nobel Peace Prize. Here is what caught our attention, “I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education, and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.”-The Autobiography of Marin Luther King Jr. - By Clayborne Carson.
In this case here we are today, more than fifty years has passed by and now we are not sure where our next meal will come from. Are the Garifuna People in Central America better off today than they were fifty years ago?
We have the audacity to believe that whosoever controls your food and your education controls your destiny. Not to mention whosoever controls your Language, controls your legacy. By Lúbara Huya
We have had the opportunity to share our knowledge of the English Language in our community in La Buga, Guatemala for the past decade. While Dr. Joseph Palacio was in La Buga on the 2nd February 2016 at the Jr. High where he met Imenigi our son for the first time, our concept of Language has not been the same since.
