Letter to future “migrants”

Stories and News No. 1018

Dear you,
There, beyond the limits of our senseless existence, go on.
Don’t give up, please, resist.
You're not alone, you know?
You're not alone in this story or history.

So many people have shared your unlucky destiny.
You may count also poor, women, homosexuals, Jews, slaves, Native Americans, farmers, and all the children of an uncomfortable, though lesser God, who were sacrificed at the altar as easy lambs.
The person who is writing lives in a time where migrants have got this infamous role.
Yes, I know, now you're going to be angry and you're right.
It’s not the destiny neither the role to be bad, but those who dare making in your behalf.
They impose on you their plagued and cruel delusions as if it were unquestionable truth from the sky.
Nevertheless, everybody knows that the latter gives just rain and snow, even lightning, miraculously comets and falling stars.
On the contrary, the burning dullness of the heart, which inflicts pain by hitting many times on the same wound, it always comes from your own kind.
My friend on the horizon, I have no idea what your name is.
Maybe you have blue skin, three eyes or flames in place of your hair, I have no idea what your diversity will be, in the eyes of others. So, I don't know your features, the depths of your being, and especially the reasons that will push your contemporaries to use you as the scapegoat of every evil in the world.
Nevertheless, I think I know what you feel.
Don’t give in to fear, promise me.
But, more than anything else, never let anger wins.
As far as it is justified and understandable.
Because, believe me on the word, they will be able to take advantage of it too.
It's already happened, it's happening right now, and it's probably going to happen tomorrow.
Nevertheless, you must learn something from the days ahead, as far as they are presented as stories from an unacceptable end.
It will not be easy.
I won’t tell you lies, so don’t do it yourself.
Many won’t make it, and not all who look like friends will be such when solidarity will be crucial.
However, I'll tell you something that is perhaps the only truth has so far been able to overcome the weight of time and human idiocy.
You can survive.
You can because you have to, and you have to, because you can.
In spite of the whining and tractable tales from a blind and opulent minority, the one and only accountable for your misfortunes, that’s exactly how the vast majority of humanity has so far walked and resisted.
Therefore, brother, walk and resist.
That sooner or later you will also have.
A normal life…
