Final message for my US students

setembro 28, 2011

Depois de lecionar nos Estados Unidos durante o ano letivo 2011, deixei aos meus estudantes uma mensagem provocadora. Compartilho com vocês por considerar as reflexões pertinentes a todos os interessados no conhecimento.

Arizona, Feb 2011

I know what “writing with the guts” means

Cold winds bring me all the sorrow of the world

In so doing I become brother of my brothers abroad


I know what homeland means

Blizzards freeze my hope and keep my faith awaiting

In so doing I become home for my homeland’s home


I know what friendship means

The night keeps me apart of my fellows

In so doing I become slave of the slaves enslaving


I also know what “power of will” means

The dawn promises to come back once more

In so doing I become an ordinary mankind’s man


And no one ever will know what absolutely freedom means

But I, who suffered by the whip, can stand tall

In so doing I become free even with handcuffs
