Today our first stop was the University where 5 preist were murdered. These were preist that supported Father Rameo´s cause. We toured the museum. We stood in the very spot they lost their lives. SO much to listen to and take in. We also visited the rose garden where there bodies had been moved to after their death. It was followed up by going to the Chapel which was their final resting place. We have learned alot about the history of the civil war and how priest fought to get rights for the poor people. We learned that Father Rameo didn´t start out wanting to help the people but his best friend convinced him. Once his Best friend was killed he took on the cause. Our guide said it meant alot because ¨Pastor Ramero showed that people can change and do good¨. All the priest were given the oppurtunity to leave but chose to stay for the people. Our next stop was the very church where Father Ramero was assasinated. We were told that he saw the asassin coming but continued with the blessing of the bread and wine because he didn´t want the full church to panic and more people to get killed.
