“Tomorrow,-harmony-will-become-discord.-Joy-will-be-replaced-by-grief.-Peace-will-give-way-to-war….-None-of-us-can-know-what-tomorrow-will-hold,-because-each-day-has-its-good-and-its-bad-moments.-So,-when-you-ask-your-questions,-forget-about-the-troops-outside-and-the-fear-inside.-Our-task-is-not-to-leave-a-record-of-what-happened-on-this-date-for-those-who-will-inherit-the-Earth;-history-will-take-care-of-that.-Therefore,-we-will-speak-about-our-daily-lives,-about-the-difficulties-we-have-had-to-face.”
