Nearly half a century has passed since Guevara was killed by Bolivia’s troop back to 1967, the year when the entire world witnessed lots of upheavals. Though Guevara has passed away, the immortality of his spirit has indubitably influenced we generation.
Ernesto Guevara, AKA Che, was born in 1928, though suffered from severe asthma, he managed to abandon native land and pursue the emancipation of the poor of the earth. Though he might encounter many adversities, his struggle against oppression and tyranny will never be obliterated.
I don’t experience that kind of age with turmoil and chaos, but when he was executed in Valle-grande at the age of 39, I know one thing is definitely true: an era is ended and is buried in the history, engulfed by the myth. Gone is Che who tended wounded enemy soldiers with great benevolence, gone is Che who overthrew the dictator Batista with Castro, and gone is Che who played an important role in the relationship between Cuba and America. Today, we must confess that Che’s influence is ubiquitous: his figure stares out at us from coffee mugs and posters, jingles at the end of key rings and jewelry.
Like those other tragedies, the whole fact that how Che’s magnificent feat get started and ended is determined at the very beginning, it was ineluctable and heartbreaking. I think the miserable end of the warrior was arranged by the god because only through this way can he get rid of tribulation and find somewhere to get some rest. In that village, where Che’s travel came to an end, and also began a myth of revival. The resurrection had successfully imprinted the silence to his face.
I wouldn’t be sure what the world will be like if the young doesn’t have a belief, biased though, to those who will never choose to follow Che’s footsteps, will submerge and lose themselves as they are in a world of cynicism, self-interest and frantic consumption. As for the reason to explain Che’s choice, let me quote some sentences written in TIME by Ariel Dorfman: I suspect the secular saint ready to die simply because he could not tolerate a world where the displaced and dislocated of history would be eternally relegated to its vast margins.
Today, despite the fact that our civilization has evolved to such a level that we can’t imagine, there still exists lots of vicious incidents. The occurrence of killing, raping and robbing reminds us that we are sometimes as ignorant and brutal as those who lived out their lives in medieval times. The utopian country imagined by Che never seems to be close to us. I don't think Che would be satisfied because when you take a look at his face from that coffin, you may be shocked to see that his uncanny eyes were almost about to open.
remember the exact number of casualties killed in Paris(2015.11.13) and Brussels(2016.03.22) by the terrorists, but when you take a look at the T-shirt where we tried to keep Che as a souvenir of the liberty, you are bound to see that the eyes of Che are still burning with impatience.
