My grandfather toll me when I was 12 years old , at that time I felt the urgency to write and He said “forget about writing; you will not change anything by writing or talking, people do not listen, they do not want to change, they do not care.” But I always want it to, especially now because is easier to get information about what happens around the word.
I listen a couple of days ago a newscaster from Spain say something that trigger my urgency to write again (not to offend anybody because somethings happened a long time ago) please we can not deny History please take responsibility.
The news person made a reply against a South American president for some offensive quotes against the Spanish government; he replied in this way “those ignorant people must be grateful that Spain went there to give them civilization and culture to save them from cannibalism – ignorance and criminality.” I listen to this kind of appreciations so many times but now a person that has the ability to say that in a space that can reach all around the word, I consider this something very wrong .
Please don’t believe what a say, I repeat again we have now the easy way to find information and please don’t deny History what happens …happens long time ago

In the XV century there lived in the American continent 70 millions aboriginal people.
One an a half century after the Spanish – British – English and French arrived to the American continent the population was decimated to only 3 millions an a half .
The Spanish people came to South America with the pretense of giving us civilization what need did our aboriginal culture had of civilization, they had a that time formation of laws , politics and economy . They did not need the civilization they gave to us to dominate us.
We have to say thank to Spain for catholic religion (forced) because at that time if You weren’t catholic You were a child of Satan .
Language (forced) because if you don’t speak Spanish You were an animal You deserve only to live in slavery or die .
Lost of our natural resources were shipped to Spain .
And we can not forget sickness most of that in our continent did not exist at that time . They brought it with them : Flu -chicken pox – measles – leprosy – yellow fever – typhus – rabbis – and why did this happen? This was because the heroes that came to save us were a bunch of criminals , no body wanted to embark in an adventure to an unknown destiny , so the Spanish Queen emptied the jails to give to Cristobal Colon (Christopher Columbus) the crews for the ships to conquer America .
THANK YOU SPAIN FOR WHAT YOU DID TO US !
