A doubt if it be Us
Assists the staggering Mind
In an extremer Anghish
Until it footing find.

An Unreality is lent,
A merciful Mirage
That makes the living possible
While it suspends the lives.

Emily Dickinson

En extremos de angustia
Para el ánimo que se tambalea
Hay una duda en la identidad
Que le ayuda hasta que halla suelo firme.

Una prestada irrealidad,
Un piadoso espejismo
Que hace el vivir posible
Suspendiendo la vida.

Emily Dickinson

A trIbUtE tO

Ingrid Betancourt []
colombian and french citizen
Green Party candidate
to presidential elections
Colombia 2002-2006
Kidnapped since 2002

"Voy a San Vicente del Caguán a exigir garantías para la población civil de la zona y a decirles a los sanvicentunos que estoy cumpliendo con mi compromiso de palabra de estar con ellos en las buenas y en las malas, como se los expresé en octubre pasado cuando Néstor León Ramírez, del Partido Verde Oxigeno, fue elegido alcalde de ese municipio. San Vicente y todos los municipios que componían la zona de distensión se la jugaron por la paz aceptando que su territorio se convirtiera en zona de distensión, ahora los colombianos nos la tenemos que jugar por ellos para que no sean tierra de barbarie y terrorismo.

Ingrid Betancourt

I go to San Vicente del Caguán to demand guarantees for the civilian population of the Zone, and to say to the people of San Vicente that I am fulfilling my commitment, to be with them in good times and bad, as I told them last October, when Néstor León Ramírez, of the Green Party, was elected mayor of their city. San Vicente, and all the communities in the Zone of Detente, played their part for peace, accepting that their territory would be turned into the goodwill zone; and now, all Colombians must play our part for them, so that theirs does not become a land of barbarism and terror."

Ingrid Betancourt

Íngrid's words on February 22, 2002, explaining why she would go to San Vicente; she was kidnapped the next day.
