Medellin has had a long history. Escobar's troops long dominated the throne here. An arena was built deep in the valley between all the neighborhoods built up against the mountains. An arena that all neighborhoods looked down on. Here people were liquidated by the military of the government, by the paramilitary and by others. So that everyone could see this terrible event. They were trapped in their own neighborhood and they could not leave. The social leaders of these communas have built in moa Son Bata a large free university for all residents of these neighborhoods in this place. Where children can get free education, teachers can teach paid lessons and where all the names of all murdered people are engraved on the outside.
This place gives hope for the youth and the future.
It is now a place where children can fly a kite safely and dream again. So that they will never be forgotten.
