Sometimes it costs to value what we take for granted. In general, we usually focus on what we don't have, what we lack, on what fails. As a country, we are still missing a lot of things. And a lot of others don't work as we would like. But we have something that we didn't always have and that not all countries have: democracy. 36 uninterrupted years of democracy. Of an imperfect democracy, but ours . And that's a lot.
Those of us who are fortunate not to have lived in times of dictatorships may have more cost us to give an idea of what it means not to have our rights fully guaranteed. Not being able to say what one wants, express a thought, an art. But that is not why we can afford not to perceive the real value of freedom. And those who did live in times of repression it is essential that they do not forget it. It happened a long time ago, but it is important to remember: memory is important.
The National Day of Memory for Truth and Justice is all about that: not to forget. To value, to resignify. Remember that, really, this doesn't have to happen anymore. That truth and justice come precisely from memory . To remember where we came from and everything we went through to get here. As a country, as a society, as a people.
We may think differently, we may not agree, but having a chance to say it is a possibility that others didn't even have. Or yes, but they paid a very expensive price. Let's not forget what happened to us . Let's not forget what doesn't have to happen anymore.
