As human beings, we learn from our mistakes, and then, with a little bit of hope, we try not to fall into the same pattern. You never plan on learning about life and its daily events, it just happens. But how is it that we almost never take preemptive action to that? Learn from someone else’s mistakes perhaps, or just plain thinking logically of what consequences might be. Even if we do take this precautionary measures, we come out to be paranoid or exaggerated in front of others.
Insecurity in Mexico is a serious example of that. Unfortunately, though I like my country and hardly think of it as the 3rd world, these kind of issues are the very ones that put us in the map with a very bad PR image. Not that they are lies, but they certainly project a hard-to-erase image. As a nation, we’ve suffered of insecurity for years, that is no news. The news here is that people are now absolutely outraged because two students from my Alma Matter were victims of this tragic situation. Don’t get me wrong, I’m outraged as well, and is not something to be taken lightly; but why all this time, all these years and now is it that powerful and public figures find the wrong words to say in a situation where they are just starting to put their minds around?
Finding a solution, including to yours truly, is a massively hard task, but let’s just stop taking action after people are hurt, killed or lost in the process, shall we?
