A movinginspiring and hopeful memoir written by an amazing and charasmatic Colombian woman Ingrid Betancourt who has sacrificed herself on every evel including physically in the hopes of bringing peace and justice to Colombia a country who has been through hell and back but whose people have never What She Wanted lost their endearing spirit unwavering patriotism and the dream of peace I know this because my mother is one of them I found myself riding a wave of emotions as I relived the struggles she faced both as a mother as well as a political activist who faught relentlessly against corruption This memoir is a testimony of her strength courage and determination traits which I pray have noteft her today as she was recently rescued from years of being held captive by the guerrilla somewhere deep in the jungles of my beloved country Colombia I hope that she runs for the president for she surely is capable and would win without uestion Not terribly well written The Uninvited like a reallyong election pamphlet which I guess it is considering when it was published Provides a nice simple rundown of how politics don t work in Colombia though it would have been nice if she had dug a Ars poetica little deeper I guess my biggest problem is that I m skeptical of the blindly idealistic I wonder if blind idealism can exist without underlying motives and blind idealism is often accompanied by an arrogance that puts the blindly idealistic into positions where carrying out their ideals is compromised or impossible That said the woman has courage which will hopefully hold her through until she and those she is being held in captivity with are hopefully hopefully hopefully freed Inight of recent events that may be a while but Decoding Air Travel let s hope idealism and pragmatism meet to make it happen I ve always had conflicting feelings about Ingrid Betancourt Of course her fight against corruption against the drugords who seem to finance the majority of the country s politicians against electoral fraud etc are all very worthy causes and I don t uestion Betancourt s motivations What bothers me is that from the very beginning when she first ran to get elected as a Congress representative the media at Dragon's Curse (The Hearts of Dragons Book 1) (English Edition) least the French media have been trying to make a saint of Betancourt and turn her into the savior of Colombia It s as if there was only one opinion to be had about her and that criticizing her or her methods was forbidden as if there was only one side to her story I feel this has been further accentuated ever since Betancourt has been held hostage by the FARCs for example her family whenev.
