That October morning was unforgettable , over 15 years ago. I was awaken from early, anxious because mommy dressed me and together we went to school. My school uniform was impeccable, red skirt and white blouse and socks.

 

Although it was not yet scheduled time, we were prepared in the school yard.

 

Not only me was excited, but also my mother, who cried when she knotted me for the first time a blue scarf: blue like the sky, the sea and the three stripes of our Cuban flag.

 

This Oct. 8, in honor of Ernesto Che Guevara”s death in Bolivia in 1967, thousands of Cuban children received from the hands of parents, relatives and teachers the attribute that identifies Moncadistas pioneers. Since then, the blue scarf proudly adorn their white collars.

 

Primary schools will become into joy and laughter and the ceremony will be a celebration for all students from first to sixth grades, especially for those that from this day will be members of the José Martí Pioneers Organization.


Today, the remembrances of mother and daughter return to our minds again and crystallize our eyes , but satisfied of the beautiful journey, marked by her maternal gaze.

 

Furthermore, following the example of Che, who continues closing us to the new man every day, the different generations of Cubans will remember forever this day that the sky looked bluer.
