Fallen

October 10, 1976

Che Guevera, dying

The country is weeping.

I saw this image in a paper today

And I thought I’d share it with you.

You,

Future me,

Whomever you are.

I thought maybe I’d let you see the sadness in his eyes,

The fear in his lips,

The death on his face.

I thought maybe it would help me,

Help me well up some emotions

Help me explain why my father keeps

Crying

Help me explain why I feel

Lost.

I thought maybe sharing this image with you

Would help me heal.

El Che has fallen.

Our nation has fallen.

Argentinindad is dead.

The country is weeping.

    Hola, Nahuel – Tan triste, no? Do you think things would have been different if Che remained in Argentina? Did he give us a road map to the future?
