Was this whole world...just an illusion?

I don't want to write about the police violence on the street. The word alone, come on. Contradictio in terminis, right? Ahum. Not so. I don't want to write about the military and police violence in Venezuela, in Nicaragua, in Argentina, in Brazil, in Peru, in Ecuador, in Chile, in.... In Chile? Democracy at its best, isn't it? So no. What is going on in Latin America? I don't want to talk about it.

The Disaster

I wish I was not writing this story at this moment. But I want to do it, because I want to make visible the work of the rescue people in Guatemala who tried to save people, risking their own life after the Volcano disaster of last Sunday. I want to honor all women and men, who immediately offered help, shelter to victims, food, medical supplies and psychological support.
