The original letter that helped to inspire this website [with minor edits], forwarded by the writer's daughter:
Brasil, Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, August 26, 2005
The Romans, with their “Ave Caesar”, this merciless god, generated a Jesus, an extraordinary psychic politician who, by preaching his philosophy in order to relieve his patricians’ pain, died on the cross; and, his apostles were crucified upside down which was even worse. I find this sort of crucifixion a terrible example for humankind.
I’m Brazilian and my parents were Christian Arabs, but I’ve already been told that I would have been Jewish in another incarnation. Believing in this, I wouldn’t have conditions to fight either for or against anyone. That’s why I insist on peace.
Diplomacy was an old attempt such as by Montezuma who felt the danger, made agreements, was betrayed and killed by Spanish plunderers that robbed and destroyed his Empire, a beautiful and great ancient civilization.
Alexander... was fortunately obstructed, defeated and killed by a tiny fly during the Red Sea crossing.
I don’t even want to refer to the sacks of the treasures in Brazil when the Portuguese turned the real land owners into slaves.
The Dutch eliminated more than half of the population on Java Island.
Another great and celebrated monstrous warrior, Napoleon, disguised as a guardian of the Liberty, Equality and Fraternity precepts, dared to take over the crown and, in person, crowned himself before the whole intimidated France.
In the...Twentieth Century, Germany, a country highly differentiated both intellectually and economically, incomprehensibly made a Hitler- a...crazy sanguinary soldier with a median intelligence who was welcomed and praised with the status of a God...to serve the purposes of destruction and horror in an immeasurable proportion with the genocide action and by setting fire to the world. I saw the cowardice, the panic and the indignity of a high-ranked officer from the German Army who, after a suicidal attempt, was taken care of by me during the shift of the first “Hospital Distrital de Brasília” Emergency Room. He wasn’t, in any way, an exact sample of the supposed superior race.
In the same World War II, in a matter of days, the bombs 1 and 2, different in quality and effect, were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagazaki. It was the biggest atrocity of the times. They could have pitied, for Japan had already been surrounded and was about to raise the white flag. And Hirohito, the god of Japan, who had said no the war, hadn’t been heard and he was obliged to himself announce officially the capture and the defeat. The world knows the bombs weren’t necessary. They could even have worked as a warning if they had mercifully dropped just one on a place that would have preserved human fraternity the most.
Now, nuclear bombs are manufactured all over the planet. And those, who can’t have the nuclear bomb or other sub-varieties, have the “ bomb-teenager”, the “bomb-child” and the drugs. This last type of bomb, the drugs, which is universally disseminated and so destructive, disguises itself as a remedy for the screams of pain and suffering, or yet for the reason to intuit the final hecatomb that threatens us.
The great assassins in History, almost in their majority, are high perilous psychopatic personalities, they are plunderers, rapers who assault, kill, drink the blood and lie down next to their victims to sleep the sleep of the fair ones.
You, Walt, didn’t kill, didn’t rob and are still imprisoned. Human justice hasn’t yet learned what it is like to be a real criminal when all mankind history is made of savagery and horror.
I’ve known you for ages. How many difficult talks, due to my poor English, we have had regarding such negative themes! It was them that made me know you. Even professionally I’m used to this custom of the analysis exercise which made me know who you are.
You are not an ordinary man. Your priviledged mind, with this superior intelligence to interpret the facts around you, refuses to admit frontiers, barriers, hates discriminations of color, religion, sex, and so on. You refused to have a family, therefore, to have children. As you told me, “ I’m afraid to pass down to my children this cursed inheritance of the miserability of human condition.”
You, who are so solidary, compassionate, generous, unable to hurt or injure and worried, used to to hire scientists and you said that your great task would be to help get rid of the damned heredity of the genetically transmitted diseases. And with all the qualities which make you a superior human being, intolerant of the bad managers of the nations, at times you take attitudes which are misunderstood by ordinary men.
You didn’t kill nor rob, but you are still imprisoned. Cautious measure? Preventive one? Does it come into one’s mind that you could be of high perilousness to the society?
I remember here, now, that the Church, the Inquisition in the Middle Ages burned slowly the invented heretics at the stakes. And so humankind goes on: inventing heretics. I was educated in a Catholic school by soft and gentle German Sisters for twelve years before going to the Medical College. They couldn’t make me believe in God. Recently, I’ve noticed that my real identity is my fingerprint, which I was given when I was still in the intrauterine life, that makes me an absolutely unique being, without a similar one on the whole planet. My voice record and the signals in my pupil reinforce this uniqueness. There must be a reason for this. There must be a very powerful intelligent energy which we can call God, capable of engendering a file that identifies us all.
When you met me, I was agnostic, but deeply mystic. Today, I light up candles for the saints to pick on God so that He sets you free. I’ve been praying zealously and I know that you will be released very soon. I wish you were my son.
