Be like you is a challenge too great; A worthy goal to which we never renounce, we do not give up in the determination to reach your height because it would be to fail you, and a revolutionary keeps his promise. We reply you in the honesty, in the militancy of the impossible and those who always find something to do for others. We walk on your builder's footsteps to follow the work you founded and like you we know how to look the enemy in the face.
But in your prophetic gift, in the capacity to overtake the time, in the magic of touching human beings in the soul and seeing the day to come, there you are irreplaceable. You knew in the Moncada Garrison that you would be acquitted by history. You knew from the beginning that the fight would be tough. You alerted us about the planetary crisis and the global warming.
A visionary commander with no supernatural powers, but just the one that looking us with the eyes of love, knowing the human being because was the center of his work. From that will to leave, arrive, enter, triumph and turn the peasant lament into a new life, the grief into hope and the dreams into a book of instructions to build paradise.
Today, from the grain of corn, from thousands of breasts and consciences your light becomes more intense. You also predicted the days without you, Prophet of the dawn. You left us a concept to guide the course and four years after your perpetuity your voice becomes clear in women and children, in soldiers and students, in workers and men in the country.
We will win. That was your greatest prophecy. That assurance in victory is a rock on which we base our struggle. Every day our faith in your prediction to rise with triumph is greater. We know, Fidel, that you never failed your people. Winning, for you, is then the only possible option.
