And you will whisper again "Freedom-Democracy"

And you will whisper again "Freedom-Democracy"

For the first time in my life, this year we no longer had nostalgia for December '90 and February '91. I no longer feel nostalgic for the memories of that era. I no longer relive within myself the fall of the dictatorship, which touched me, shocked me, inspired me, just like most Albanians, despite the fact that I was a witness and a protagonist. Perhaps many years have passed; at least one generation. Those of us who were the real protagonists of the events, who would give the truth about how it happened, are either silent and have given up like me, or we have been divided into camps according to interests. Some are in their third year, maybe even passed away. Optical documents, videos, black and white photos are outdated and, if you retouch them with color, they look fake! The events, station and starting point, are often used for party and individual use, have been used to create cults of my own personality that you have to dig deep to find the truth and real meaning. From the tendentious slogan "The dictatorship did not end in 1990!", to the tendency to demystify the student revolt, the issue is clearly whether the Student Movement overthrew the tyranny of Enver Hoxha. No! It did not overthrow him, just as the declaration of Independence in 1912 did not bring the liberation of the nation, just as November 1944 did not bring liberation, but a civil war! However, we remember and "celebrate" December '90, with false myths and false myths. The bitterest thing is that the feeling and the emotion come and go. Poisoned by doubt. For me, freedom came when I freely read everything forbidden and censored, I listened loudly to the music that until then I listened to softly; when i spoke I argued and spoke my mind openly. When I voted for those who I believed would bring change. When girls dressed as girls and loved freely in the street, Parks saw the guilt complex and dishonesty. When my friends in trousers with perforated pockets or trousers without pockets sought fortune and what their parents had missed in Europe! But, nevertheless, there was another reality, other people, often our acquaintances with high positions and positions in the tyranny, who, with a dirty conscience and dirty hands with Albanian blood, fought and tried to look like the best devout democrats. Like the biggest dissidents of the dictatorship, who, "repentant", mocked and insulted the dictator who had put them in office, that dictator, whom a short time ago they were praising, singing, they became a mat for him to step on! There were also some others, who blew up any attempt at democratization with nostalgia for Enver Hoxha and his crimes that were never punished... They were all here since then! And much earlier. Since the creation of our tired Albanian state. All those who loved Albania as a ship sailing in the open sea, with sails steered by hope for the future. Even those who saw it as a minefield and wanted it to be surrounded by barbed wire, to "grow" self-isolated. Even those who wanted to create and change; even those who boarded every train; even those who exchanged white overcoats for thousands of euro suits, and those who were motivated purely by interest and calculation. And when you have seen this movie so many times in these years of our slow transition, how can you still get excited? And yet, you will again embrace and shake hands with all those who once stood up, who created their stature and profile without accepting to take advantage, nor to take back what they gave to the motherland... You will remember your friends you will ask yourself for the hundredth time, if you were to do the same thing again, you would find the courage to stand up and resist to bring about change, even though you already know that the dictatorship will last forty, even fifty years, as in Spain and Portugal; although I know that 32 years later the elites will not be changed, they will simply be recycled. And you will whisper with the same passion, the call that continues to be a compass: "Freedom - Democracy!", "We love Albania like all of Europe!" again you will hug and shake hands with all those who once stood up, who created their stature and profile without accepting to take advantage, nor to take back what they gave to the homeland...
