Challenged @ merej99 day 1 The innocence of my people (Original Work)
Hello dear friends of steemit, thank you for being present on my blog and accompanying with reading my post. Those who follow my work will have noticed that lately I am uploading my materials, I am not using other works to adapt or inspire me, a person recently told me, if you want to achieve different results, you have to do different jobs, thank you very much to all people That throughout this year I am working on the platform in one way or another have helped me.
As it could not be otherwise, this image inevitably brings me memories of my adolescence, that morning I got up like every morning very early, at that time I lived in my beloved Barrio Jose Maria Ponce, at that time our house was a humble construction Located from south to north in a horizontal way with its entrance and exit door facing west where the sun rises.
When the door was opened, the rich aromas of chamomile flowers were first to be seen; in the distance, among the branches of the fruit plants, the small glimpses of the April sun rose. Its reddish colors slowly broke the gray colors of dawn.
It was the first hour of Friday, April, 1982, I promised to be a normal Friday, the most anticipated day of the week, the last day of class of the week, and the obligations I had to fulfill in my home.
In my province it is customary for children to start working at an early age, I started at the age of 8, at that time at 13 years of age I was already an experienced young man with pre-established obligations to fulfill.
With my blank mind I enjoyed the rich aromas and watched the beautiful flashes of the rising sun, in the distance you could perceive the trinar of the birds, the cries of the Pacaá (Gallina del Monte) and the song of the picuí pigeon that betrayed one day Hot, suddenly heard the rooster singing that indicates that the sun is peeking.
That was the signal that I expected to start with my daily duties, I took my bicycle and I went to the tambo to get the milk freshly milked, a vital product for me to prepare breakfast, on my return enjoy a good latte accompanied by some fried cakes.
At the end of the breakfast I take my bicycle and take my younger sister to the kindergarten, an hour later, when I returned I had to take care of cleaning the orchard, while cleaning the weeds, towards plans of what my weekend would be like.
For the days to be more productive, the same Friday to return from the school would carry out my tasks to be able to have free all Saturday and Sunday, my plans consisted of hunting, playing soccer, swimming in the lagoon, fishing and falling The night, a few hours of metegol, well planned to make me better of the weekend.
As I said everything indicated that it would be a normal day, suddenly the sky began to change, slowly turned gray, the temperature began to fall, then the birds flew quickly, as when they escape the storm, after them a spectacle never seen, a great Deploying hunting planes, helicopters, noisy bombs of cannons, followed by unimog trucks of the Argentine army, in a few minutes surrounded the small neighborhood, to see all this deployment, leave what was doing and I headed towards my home.
When the radio came on, my parents listened to the news of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, indicating the beginning of the Malvinas War or the South Atlantic Conflict, as we called the war we had with the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, my country in an attempt to recover the Malvinas Islands, invades the islands unleashing a warlike conflict that should never have existed.
The province of Corrientes is far from the Malvinas Islands where the conflict was taking place. This deployment was due to its proximity to the triple border, a vulnerable place if one wants to enter the country coming from the northeast.
Days passed, gradually we became accustomed to the military movement, for my part I returned with my daily obligations and commitments, the soldiers mounted guards in a very relaxed, including some were coming to the fifth to talk while I cleaned the ground.
My brother Corinthians were always considered brave men, the provincial axis through history was present in all warlike conflicts, the Battle of Brava lagoon that the Cortes Cordova against the Invasion of Juan Manuel de Rosas, the triple alliance war Or the Guazu war, fought against the invasion of Paraguay, the confrontation of my brothers against the English invasions, my military brothers have always been at the forefront of the battles for their courage and patriotism.
This time again the solidarity of the correntino was present, a contingency of soldiers coming from the regiment 4 of Monte homem, said present in the Malvinas war, to support the nation in this warlike conflict.
Faced with this situation, the entire town of Corriente got up and organized one of the largest food collections of all time, the proceeds were to send our brave soldiers who were on behalf of us all, there are no people more supportive than the Correntino, when a brother needs, humble people attended with closed boxes of non-perishable food, relatives put letters inside the boxes with words of encouragement for our brave soldiers.
Meanwhile the war continued, three times a day the Joint Chiefs of Staff reported on the situation of the war, the news was always favorable, our army with its Pucara Airplane destroyed British Ships and Army, and everything that appeared in its path, Until one day on July 14, 1982 the radio transmissions went out and no one else reported the situation, days later we learned that Argentina surrendered, we were defeated by the English army.
Apparently all the information we received was lies, our soldiers did not have weapons in conditions to fight, the rifles were out of fashion, they gave the soldiers weapons in bad conditions, when they wanted to shoot the bullets did not come out, we were devastated by the army British, the delegation of the English Gurkas slaughtered my brothers in war, the Corinthian soldiers of the 4th Regiment of Monte Caseros were Cannon fodder, they were the first to fall into battle, my brave brothers fought with a knife, against an army of the first World, armed with firearms of last generation, infrared sights that through them was seen at night as if it were daylight, yet gave their lives to defend my nation.
Some time later the details of the conflict began to come to light, the soldiers surrendered not because they did not want to defend the country, they surrendered to weakness, they did not have the strength to fight, they suffered from hunger, they spent whole days without eating, High rank fled, those who gave battles were soldiers without rank, fought to save their lives, count when they were captured thank God, they knew that when they were captive they were going to eat, a shameful fact of the history of my country.
The boxes of food that we have donated never traveled to the island, the usual scoundrels were the order of the day to profit from the situation, as they were received classified and sold to retailers, more than one merchant claim to have found A letter from a relative in a food box.
A war that never had to be, this war not only left dead people, also left crippled people and a lot of stories of heroes worth telling, seeing this work the memories come, those passages of having studied the history of my province, living memories Of my adolescence when the worst war in the history of the country developed.
This story I wrote with passion, pride, tears of happiness and sadness, to think only of my Corinthian brothers who throughout history have died for their courage and patriotism to defend our beloved Nation, I could not help shedding my tears at the thought In the innocence of my people.
Dedicated to my Correntinos brothers who gave their lives to defend my nation.
