Update from the IMU-CORI Justice Desk:
I Am Not Afraid of Death
I am no longer afraid of death,
I know well its dark and cold corridors
leading to life.
I am afraid rather of that life
which does not come out of death
which cramps our hands and retards our march.
I am afraid of my fear and even more of the fear of others,
who do not know where they are going,
who continue clinging
to what they consider to be life which we know to be death!
I live each day to kill death;
I die each day to beget life,
and in this dying unto death,
I die a thousand times and am reborn another thousand
through that love from my People, which nourishes hope!
