Wednesday began by a guest speaker who was a lawyer pursuing material and intelligent criminals to the Guatemalan Genocide. This lawyer touched everything I had felt about the genocide. His personal involvement and losing so many family members is a terrifying concept. Family is a universal love and I believe one of the most powerful emotions to exist. This lawyer made of himself a person who would be in the position to be able to help people who like him lost so many in this atrocity. He is not only inspiration to me personally but also a symbol of hope to Guatemalans that people still fight and will continue to fight for the injustices occurring in Guate. Later on we went to La Puya a section of communities that live together and share natural resources. La Puya also inspired me a lot. They symbolize the fight and the hope for a better Guate. They have fought away a mining company who is trying to mine and destroy the limited natural resources in these communities. Not only have they protested but they’ve done so peacefully even though they’ve been provoked by the government time and time again. Inspiration comes from the genuine fight and struggle; these speakers facilitated me to reflect what a movement is and the multiple ways that exist to help and move forwards with a movement. Inspired and humbled today was one of the most influential days in my life; there is always hope and today helped me realize that.
