TRANSLATION:"Well, good morning. The truth is that I don't know if I'm going to be able to speak ... In the last few days I have been thinking about it, to see what I was going to say, what I could say, the truth is that nothing came out. I was still blocked as I am now. This is very difficult for me. After so many years, being here my entire life, I'm not ready for this. Last year, with the burofax, I was convinced I knew that I wanted to leave, what I was going to say and I was convinced. But this year is not the same. This year, my family and I were convinced that we were going to stay here, at home. It’s what we wanted more than anything".
