A SPRING OF FRUSTRATION IN SPAIN
It's amazing to see this morning's headline in THE WASHINGTON POST!
I love the honesty of the newspaper headline: A SPRING OF FRUSTRATION IN SPAIN. And I love how the Americans have been brave enough to use this word: FRUSTRATION.
And especially, I love the play with words, using the word SPRING, generally evoking hope, new beginnings and the rebirthing of nature, with the horrible feeling of FRUSTRATION, which depicts exactly how many of us feel in Spain. Not much good news for democracy and popular representation.
And, coincidence or not, I love the thunderstom icon on top of the Puerta del Sol photograph. Is it a symbol of the upcoming storm? will we have nice sunshine after the storm or will we have a gloomy and rainy electoral spring?
As everything in our country these days... we'll know the answers next Monday, after the local elections results are revealed.
In the meantime, I'd love to hear your opinions and your feelings. Are you frustrated or satisfied with our present situation? Do you feel represented by your goverment or do you feel cheated by them?
Let's take advantage of the democracy of the Internet and the freedom to publish our own opinions. At least, we are now free to speak our minds online.
Do it now, while we are allowed to!
