En estos días es difícil escribir una columna periodística sobre temas educativos y no pronunciarse sobre alguna o algunas aristas del abominable caso de los estudiantes normalistas de Ayotzinapa.

Es difícil encarar el trabajo pedagógico con el sentido político que intrínsecamente tiene la educación sin expresar, por lo menos, indignación. A partir de ese primer nivel de conciencia cada uno asciende los otros en función de sus convicciones.

Es doloroso no compadecerse, es decir, no sentir con los otros, los familiares, el profundo abismo que les carcome, las rabia que les sacude, la impotencia que puede conducir a comportamientos todavía impredecibles, o medianamente predecibles.

Es imposible (para mí) no conmoverse hondamente con las múltiples manifestaciones que se pronuncian enérgicas en todo el mundo reclamando al gobierno mexicano; denunciando la inocultable ineptitud policial y política, con visos de frivolidad y mucha insensibilidad.

Por las expresiones populares y las movilizaciones sociales, dentro del dolor, la pena, la conmoción, es alentador no sentir un viento fresco soplando en la cara por la esperanza en que este capítulo, ya escrito en páginas dolorosas, sea el último en una historia sangrienta, pero el primero de una nueva era más venturosa de conciencia política y ciudadanía plena.

El dolor, la impotencia, la desesperanza ya están clavados, pero tal vez sirvan, así lo deseo, para generar un sentido al mismo tiempo de conciencia y de fragilidad. Fragilidad y conciencia que nos induzcan a comprender que la sociedad se fortalece en la medida en que la habitan ciudadanos educados y comprometidos que, a su vez, consolidan la sociedad que formará mejores ciudadanos, en una vuelta incesante. Ojalá.
