Dia Nacional por la Dignidad de las Victimas del Conflicto Armado

25 febrero 2000
Dedicado al pueblo de Guatemala
y a sus generaciones futuras

y cuando se haga el entusiasta recuento
de nuestro tiempo por los que todavía
no han nacido pero que se anuncian
con un rostro mas bondadoso
saldremos gananciosos los que mas hemos
sufrido de el y es que adelantarse
uno a su tiempo es sufrir mucho de el
pero es bello amar al mundo con los ojos
de los que no han nacido todavía y es esplendido
saberse ya un victorioso cuando todo entorno a uno
es aun tan frio y tan oscuro

Otto Rene Castillo
Poeta revolucionario Guatemalteco

Honorable Comité de Huelga de Dolores del Año 2000 Asociación de Estudiantes Universitarios Oliverio Castañeda de León

National Day of Dignity for the Victims of Guatemala's Armed Conflictdedicated to the people of Guatemala and its future generations.
And when the enthusiastic telling
Of our time comes for those that
Haven't been born but are announced
With a friendly face
We'll come out winners those that
Have suffered most from it
Being ahead of your time is to suffer from it
But it's beautiful to love the world with the eyes
Of one that hasn't been born and it's splendid
To know that you'll be victorious when
Everything around you
Is so cold and so dark
Otto Rene Castillo
Guatemalan revolutionary poet
