  • Our baby girl!
  • President Belisario!
  • During the 1970s, Juan Carlos met a beautiful woman named Liliana. Since both of them lived in El Barrio de Pablo Escobar ,they met at the food market. Together they had a daughter named Luz. Juan Carlos was happy but a little bit more nervous. Luz was growing up and many things were needed. Juan Carlos didn't know what to do because he had no money. At that time Pablo Escobar started his regime in Colombia and started a drug war.Pablo Escobar was loved by the people who lived in el barrio even if he killed about 4,000 people.He was the Robin Hood of Colombia.Juan Carlos didn't like the way Pablo escobar deals with his problems,but he turned out to be the hero and savior. The only solution Juan Carlos had in mind was being a drug dealer.He knew the consequences but needed to help his family survive. When he started thinking he hesitated and talked to himself. He kept telling himself it was for a good cause,but he knew a bigger problem can happen to his family and his country. For example, he can jail and leave them alone without any help. At the end of his thought process he decided to be part of the business and became a more industrious person. He didn't tell Liliana about him joining the business because he wanted to protect her and his daughter.
  • 15 years passed since Juan Carlos joined the drug dealing business. When Luz went to school, Juan Carlos heard the news about Colombia having a new president. He stressed more and more because the drug dealing business was growing when president Belisario Betancur Cuartas started his presidency. During Belisario´s presidency there was a lot of violence and a bigger growth of drug dealing.With that growth Juan Carlos had had a home, clothes, food and the best education for his daughter. His daughter was all grown up,she was going to a new school. Juan Carlos has a lot of money and told the leader that he didn't want to be part of it anymore.The leader let him go easy, oh so Juan Carlos thought.
  • *5 years passed*Luz went to school she met a guy named Steven.Luz noticed that he wasn't from here she helped him around and liked him instantly.Weeks passed,they started dating.When Luz mother and father met him they were surprised because he was a “gringo.” They accepted the relationship unlike Stevens mother she did not accept the relationship because Luz was not like them,Stevens father accepted the relationship.Steven's mother thought Luz was the wrong person for her son all because she was from El Barrio De Pablo Escobar.
  • One day, Luz was walking home and saw the front door open from her house.She was very surprised because there was nobody home.She called the authorities and parents but haven't arrived,her parents rushed home faster than the authorities.She decided to walk upstairs and saw her room filled with red paint in the walls saying “This is just the beginning…”When the authorities got to there home they didn't do nothing because they said “there is nothing we can do” Juan Carlos knew who it was, he left not telling his family.When he got there he yelled at the leader “What do you want ?” *there was a silence*Juan Carlos didn't know who the leader was. His name was Jose he said “you made a commitment and you can't back down.Pablo yelled ¨make a decision you have until midnight or your family dies¨ Juan Carlos walked home and saw them but he knew he had to go back so his family can be safe.Juan Carlos started working the next day.
  • When Juan Carlos got back home from work he told his daughter and wife to go to the United States. They both denied to go they gave him many reasons to stay but he never gave him reasons on why he wants them to leave. Juan Carlos convinced Luz to leave with Steven so that Stevens mother won't try to separate them. Liliana stayed because she wanted to spend her last days with her husband. She never told Juan Carlos she had cancer.*8 months passed*Luz was studying in the United States and got married with Steven. Juan Carlos had was still working.Liliana felt worse and worse everyday and Juan Carlos never noticed.One day Liliana didnt wake up Juan Carlos called the ambulance.When they got here there was nothing else to do. Juan Carlos was devastated but saw a card. It said“Dear Juan Carlos, I never told you I had cancer because I knew you would add another problem to your list. I knew you were a drug dealer,now that i'm gone you should not be tied to business anymore . Let go of the past and start over. Don't forget to tell Luz that I love and I hope she is happy with Steven.You are the love of my life ,don't forget that. Love Liliana”
  • *3 years passed*After Liliana's death and Juan Carlos was still a drug dealer.For a week Juan Carlos didn't give a guy his orders.The next day the guy shot him in the head.When Juan Carlos died he had a diary writing his entire story.Luz came to Columbia with her husband Steven and saw the diary To find the guy who killed her father.Luz saw the diary but didn't pay attention to it.She was getting tired of looking and was about to give up until It was 1993 and Pablo Escobar was killed.That day someone called Luz anonymously saying to pick up some documents.They were all about her father and him working for Pablo Escobar.She was shocked and remembered a conversation when she was little and started crying.When she got home she saw her father's diary and skimmed through the pages when the last page said “Luz I know you will be reading this I just want to say that I was a drug dealer I am not proud of it, but it was the only thing I could do to help us survive. I don't know how you thinking about this,all you need to know that I did it for you and your mom,I Love You.”When Luz finished reading she remembered how her father died and told her husband “He did it on purpose, he wanted to die…”
