We have only one story-- the neverending contest in ourselves of good

Depending on the circumstances of the event or the state of mind of the person, what is good can appear evil and what is evil can appear good. As history and works of literature have shown us, only societies perception of what is morally right p

It has been said that a country that goes through hard times, will often rebound and become stronger as time passes by. Guatemala is one of those countries. It may not be situated in an area of peace and wealth. It may not have the best medicine. It may not have enough of an army to defend its patriots. All in all, Guatemala has survived through the many hardships and warring and has come out as the stronger of the nations. Guatemala may not be the best of the best, but it has survived through
