High School graduation in San Mateo Ixtatan, Huehuetenango

This high school asked us to be the benefactor of their graduation and give the graduation speech, because we had just donated computers to their school. I wrote a speech which Rafael read, about a “Nueva Vista,” the name of our recreation park. One goes to our park, the speech explained, not only to play, but also to think about a new future (“new view”), a future of honesty without corruption; dedication to improving one’s self, one’s community, and one’s country; of taking care of one’s parents in their old age; a future with a good character. The speech was well received and referred to in following speecehes. Eulalia handed out diplomas, and then the big dance.
