Discovering the Florentino Ariza Shadow

When I was in high School a very special teacher teached me that we, the Youth, are called to be the Light of the world, we are smart, we have energy, we are like a candle in the middle of the darkness :). I really believe in that, since that moment I have been trying to be a candle, a lot of people told me that I am. In high school people knew that, some times they said me that I pushed them in order to go into their goals. In the university I didn't help as many people as I did in high school, but it was more gratifying.

I always want to be a candle, but some times I feel like a shadow, regarding the main character of "Love in time of Cholera", Florentino Ariza, when his girlfriend, the woman that he loved the most, saw him again after years of be separated, and discovered that all the ideas, dreams and thoughts that she had with him, just desappear, why? because she realized that he was a shadow.....

Recently, I felt that, some times people don't listen to me, don't pay attention to me, is like I don't be here.....

Yes I know, it only happened a few times, but yesterday I really realize it, regarding some mail that I recived, I'm just a number, just a person who count in a company, in an exchange, in a team, and that means some money... where is the person who smile, who laugh, who help, who take care of the others, who love.... ? maybe I'm just a number in the shadow's place in the middle of the caribbean.........
