Guatemala: Asking About Guatemala

A poem called “Today, they me asked about you, Guatemala,” led Jorge Cabrera to reflect on the state of affairs in his native country [ES]. He writes, “Let's talk about the people, the news, and the insecurity that affects all of the people that make up what we call Guatemala. It is also on these people, on us, to better the situation. How? I don't know, but I'd like think that there are still solutions out there, and I want to think that the upcoming elections are not just another disillusion.”
