Hello, I am from Mexico, so please forgive my spelling and grammar mistakes.
It has been only two months when Carlos left me. He was shot on the head by a thief. It was around 5:30 pm and he was coming from work. He was opening the gate when this ugly guy asked for the car keys; Carlos did not understand him, so when he turned to this ugly guy to ask “what?” he received the shot.
I saw everything, and when this ugly guy ran away I followed him yelling and cursing him. He turned back and chased me. Thanks to my neighbor (he yelled at him) the ugly guy did not get into my home and killed me too (sometimes I wish this happened).
Carlos was lying on the garage in a blood puddle. Our two little girls saw him until other neighbors took them away. My uncle is a doctor and he could stabilize Carlos until the ambulance came.
My neighbor rushed me to the hospital where I met my step parents. The doctor told us that nothing could be done. It was a mortal shot. Carlos died at 7:33 pm on March 12, 2012. He was 42 years old. He was a high school teacher, and taught ethics (so needed in this country). He was a “gentleman” in all the word.
It is not fair. All of this happens because Mexico, the government does not care. The police and the thieves “work” in the same team. We, the citizens, are helpless. We can do nothing because when we blame these ugly guys we can be killed. My neighbors and I know who this guy is, but we are afraid. I have two little girls to take care of, and if I claim for justice I can receive threats and end up dead. I do not have enough funds to move to other city or other country. All my family lives in the same street, so I have to stay here, hating the country once I loved. I feel deeply sad. I only ask God three things; time runs very fast, my children are adults, and I pass the way to be with Carlos again in the “spirits world”. At this time, nothing can cheer me up.
The children and I are taking therapy, but I feel I cannot close the circle without justice. Family and friends tell me about “divine justice”, but I want justice from this world, but I cannot get it, because in this horrible country it is dangerous, as I explained.
