Sencillez y soberbia política

La historia que hoy te cuento es la de un personaje del pueblo, que ha entendido su papel de servicio. Le pagan como instructor de baile y cumple. Tiene un carisma que envidiaría cualquier político. Su secreto es ser auténtico, hablar con la verdad. Estuvieron a punto de quitarle la vida.

Le pagan por dar clases y quienes pagan lo apapachan con llevarle café, pan, barra de chocolate o cualquier bocadillo. También están pendiente de la fecha de su cumpleaños para organizarle fiesta. Invitarlo a desayunar en algún restaurante. Por supuesto que su ingreso está muy lejos de ser el sueldo de un legislador o alto funcionario. Aspira a la larga a convertirse en dueño de su propio Gym, producto de su trabajo cotidiano.

Se llama Jan Ávila. Su sencillez, la sonrisa, el humor, el baile, la selección musical, lo han convertido en uno de los favoritos en el club deportivo donde trabaja. Su comportamiento es natural, no tiene que fingir ni simular, mucho menos mentir a quienes lo escuchan.

Es cauto, medido, cordial, pacifista, conciliador. Le gusta que la gente disfrute y se divierta en su clase. Para él, lo importante es que sus alumnos y alumnas gocen el momento. Sonrían. Bromea con el color morena de su piel.

¿Qué cualidades tiene Jan que contrastan con el comportamiento político?

Actúa sin dobles caras. Es leal. No regatea el saludo ni la sonrisa. No se esconde. Se entrega en su trabajo. Hasta el límite de sus posibilidades. Su máximo esfuerzo. Procura tener contacto e identificar a los que asisten a su clase. Se coloca al frente. Toma su tiempo para recorrer toda la duela, acercarse al que está en la última fila, en medio o en una esquina. No descuida a nadie. Corrige pasos, sin incomodar a quien no los pueda hacer con precisión. Es respetuoso. Alienta el ejercicio, la diversión, la amistad y el afecto.

No tiene que prometer nada que no pueda hacer y mucho menos pagar porque lo quieran. Es auténtico.

Jan, con apenas 33 años, 9 como instructor profesional de baile, no olvida el día que estuvieron a punto de matarlo. Dos asaltantes, a la vuelta de su casa. Uno de ellos lo obligó a ponerse de rodillas y le puso el arma de fuego en la frente, mientras el otro ordenaba a su compañero que disparara. Jan, en cuestión de segundos dio un repaso a la película de su vida. Se encomendó a Dios. “Virgencita protégeme con tu manto”, hubiera sido la ultima frase en su mente.

“¡Dispara!...¡Dispara!”, gritaba el delincuente a su compañero. Segundos de angustia. Macabros. Con voz temblorosa dijo: “no puedo”. Y no pudo. Los dos delincuentes optaron por echarse a correr, con las pertenencias de la víctima.

Lo único que no le quitaron a Jan fue esa vocación de servicio y sencillez que están muy lejos de caracterizar al político bañado de soberbia que llega al poder y cree que todos los demás deben servirlo y seguir sus ocurrencias.

TO TELL

Arturo Zárate Vite

Simplicity and arrogance

The story that I tell you today is that of a character from the town, who has understood his role of service. He is paid as a dance instructor and he complies. He has a charisma that any politician would envy. His secret is to be authentic, to speak truthfully. They were about to take his life.

He is paid to give classes and those who pay are fed with coffee, bread, chocolate bar or any sandwich. They are also pending the date of his birthday to organize a party. Invite him to breakfast at a restaurant. Of course, your income is far from being the salary of a legislator or senior official. He aspires in the long run to become the owner of his own Gym, a product of his daily work.

His name is Jan Ávila. His simplicity, smile, humor, dance, musical selection, have made him one of the favorites in the sports club where he works. His behavior is natural, he does not have to pretend or simulate, much less lie to those who listen to him.

He is cautious, measured, cordial, pacifist, conciliatory. He likes people to enjoy and have fun in his class. For him, the important thing is that his students enjoy the moment. Smile He jokes about the brown color of his skin.

What qualities does Jan have that contrast with political behavior?

Acts without double faces He is loyal. Do not haggle the greeting or the smile. It does not hide. It is delivered at your work. Up to the limit of its possibilities. Your maximum effort. Try to have contact and identify those who attend your class. It is placed in front. Take your time to traverse the entire stave, approach the one in the last row, in the middle or in a corner. Do not neglect anyone. Correct steps, without bothering who can not do them accurately. It is respectful. Encourage exercise, fun, friendship and affection.

You do not have to promise anything you can not do, let alone pay for it. It is authentic.

Jan, barely 33 years old, 9 as a professional dance instructor, does not forget the day they were about to kill him. Two assailants, just around the corner from his house. One of them forced him to his knees and put the firearm on his forehead, while the other ordered his partner to shoot. Jan, in a matter of seconds gave a review of the movie of his life. He entrusted himself to God. "Little Virgin protect me with your cloak," would have been the last sentence in her mind.

"Shoot! ... Shoot!" Shouted the offender to his partner. Seconds of anguish. Macabre With trembling voice said: "I can not." And he could not. The two criminals chose to run, with the belongings of the victim.

The only thing that did not take away from Jan was that vocation of service and simplicity that are far from characterizing the politician bathed in arrogance that comes to power and believes that everyone else should serve and follow their occurrences.
