Me too.. just thankful I'm alive, as of now. I don't wish women and men harassment, ever..because things will always escalate violently...😞..Mutual respect and consent is the most beautiful thing. I wish I had the courage to be ruthless towards my abuser but I don't have those intentions..we all have a lot to unlearn and learn.. doesn't mean I forgave that person...but it does mean that I will heal in my own way..by staying present and working on myself. & beginning to be able to recognize warning signs to prevent myself and others from suffering the same or worse situations..I find that it's also helping me develop meaningful relationships with folks that are well-intended and mindful of my journey.. thanks to those who came thru. But yo, FUCK those who found me disposable and continued to fuss with me instead of being supportive. Hope to be buff enough one day..to give mighty pushes away from nasty & mean people!! ...Stop hurting us.
2 de Octubre no se olvida. Damn, this summer I met a man who claimed to be a body architect. He found natural remedies for my black eye, at the time. ・・・
A man by the name of Renee, the body architect, told a story about being captured by Gustavo Diaz's federal jefe de policía (Mexico's prez during 1968) because he had to vanish. The face of this young man protesting & looking back at the militant force pushing down the crowds and killing off everyone in sight; was published all over the newspapers. They deemed him to be fit and worthy for a specific career.. so by federal demands he was enrolled in medical school in Cuba. When he returned to Mexico, it had been 15 years since 1968..

I keep in mind all the elders that were helpless during these disasters. Truly fortifies my drive to document and listen to as many stories as I can. The homage I've been paying since I was a child, to my ancestors, has many roots.. I stand closely to when my grandmother was young and all the way to the rancho; when my dad didn't have shoes to go to school in Apatzingán 1970. I feel so familiar and so much love with the music, films, and photography of the past. It sends me to a better and familiar place. But also wanna honor the not so good times; those we've all had plenty. Because the struggle has been around since the concrete penetrated pure land of our ta-ta-ra-abuelos. I would love to honor this lifestyle all my life like a timeline. Because as a result of colonization and the violence it was, those who remained have a story. I wanna hear and honor it because they matter and are the aftermath of resistance.
My message to the youth & young adults: cherish your elderly family & community. They may have the anecdote to your current situation. Wisdom doesn't come with age, that's for certain..but chime in to their story telling every now and then. They might be the link to a past you will wanna know some day.
Hope the elderly, the young, the unborn, all rest easy.
