México lindo y querido...

Today we were supposed to live another day in our lives.

Today at eleven o'clock in the morning a preventive drill would be carried out to commemorate an event that marked the lives of many 32 years ago and we would return to our usual activities

And it was just today, that a similar event happened again, marking the history of Mexico again.

Mi México lindo y querido…

I remember the stories my parents told me about that earthquake that struck them deeply, not only to them, but to a whole city.

And it breaks my heart to know that in 20 years, I will tell my children my own story in a situation that was practically the same.

People screaming, crying, in desperation to know even the smallest detail about the well-being of their loved ones.

The news reported in an incredibly painful way. And unfortunately, so true.
Authorities report a magnitude of 7.1 on the Ritcher scale, with approximately 100 injured and about 70 dead.

And thirty-two years ago, the deaths were so many that it was impossible to count them all.

And to top it off, we were barely two weeks away from having suffered the strongest earthquake Mexico has ever had.

So far, more than 20 collapsed buildings have been confirmed. Among them, primary schools which there are children trapped. 

As they say vaguely, history repeats itself.

It´s so sad to do downtown, the place where the magic of the City of Mexico concentrates the most, and see it completely paralized

Now, I will have the luxury of being selfish for a moment and I will ask you to pray for us. Keep us in your mind, and I do not ask you for me, I ask you for all my compatriots who are suffering.

If you are one of the people who experienced this, I send you all my strength, hoping to you to be well together with all your family and friends.

And those who do not correspond, if you have any chance to help, I beg you to do so.

Maybe you’ve never visited Mexico, maybe you’ve never met anyone here. 

But remember that we are all human.

And nothing will change it.

I leave you saying one more thing:

Thirty-two years ago we were able to get up, and now we can do it again.

Because, who better than the Mexicans for the personification of courage and solidarity?
