"I saw Motorcycle diaries tonight, on the 37th anneversery of El Che’s
capture. I cried through the entire movie. Not so much for the loss of his
physical presence on this earth as for the death of my innocence. I have been
changed by the world, by his world, as seen through his eyes and my own.
I feel El Che’s presence with me, gnawing at me every day like a cold wind
that bites through a wool sweater. I feel as he did, and I feel guilt for not
having his courage.
I miss him, not as an untouchable physical being, but as a sentiment almost
forgotten in the world.
Thanks to those who brought the Motorcycle Diaries to the scene, this
sentiment is being felt once again around the world.
As I heard people reacting to the movie, I was filled with pride in El
Comandante and in all of those who have struggled for a just world."
Hasta La Victoria Siempre.
