I am now 53 years old. It's time now to share with others the story of the time I spent in jail as political prisoner in Uruguay, when I was 19 years old. I want to write not for claiming prestige or rewards but to be a witness, to be able to pass to the next generations what happen when you give up, when you give military and politicians the right to decide, manipulate and play with our lives.

Dear Ana,
Importantly, thank you so much for sharing your story! I would love to have the opportunity to speak with you in detail regarding your experience, means to address this issue, ect. At the moment, after years working with children/youth in prisons through the US, Africa, and Asia, I am working toward the creation of an organization comprehensively addressing this concern. I wonder how we might engage together to share our experiences, ideas, etc. Looking forward to reading more from you!! As ever, Martine
