Ver, oír y callar (2015)


Aunque solo tiene 128 páginas, Ver, oír y callar es un libro demasiado importante para reflejar en la guerra a muerte entre jóvenes y adolescentes en El Salvador durante las ultimas tres decadas. Juan José Martínez es un escritor de altas calificaciones, y sus historias dejan a uno marcado con la urgencia de la situación.

Sin embargo, hay más detalles que el autor necesita contar, especialmente sobre las mujeres del país, incluso a las voces de madres, esposas y otras mujeres que siguen siendo parte de esta historia. Pero todo con tiempo. Mientras tanto, el libro es un buen lugar para iniciar un diálogo tan necesario sobre como cambiar el curso del país centroamericano para los jóvenes y adolescentes ahí que merecen mejor.

Looking back at it now, it was a natural match: while neither of us had known the other person longer than two days, it didn’t matter; we took well to each other as rivals from the start and have enjoyed one-upping one another ever since.

After all, we’re both avid news junkies, long-time WWE fans, and rabid hip-hop aficionados. In other words, we both know a thing or two about braggadocio.
