The Nation’s Senate Distinguishes Tenor José Cura

 

 

In his own words:  Maestro José Cura provides his comments:

MANY ASKED ME TO POST THE TRANSLATION OF MY "FULL SPEECH" IN THE ARGENTINEAN SENATE. SO HERE I GO, IN A QUICK ENGLISH VERSION. HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND MY WORDS.

Everybody talks about me as being a rebel. I am not a rebel but yes someone argumentative who does not take a "It has to be like this" for an answer before searching further. Yes, I am argumentative, but loyal, which is what counts.

No one is a prophet in his own land. I love that saying. Do you know why? Because it is a two-sided phrase: It serves the one rejected to justify his failure and it also serves those who have rejected him to justify their disdain… It’s a brilliant line. Jesus gave it to us and it useful for everything...

When I left in 1991, as with all those who are forced to go away, I left very angry. “Nobody is a prophet in his own land” I repeatedly said to myself, trying to self-motivate my exodus. But the truth is that when I left in 1991, not only I was not a prophet in my own land: I was a prophet nowhere. And my people, for much that I needed a motivation, was not responsible of that!

I didn’t understand this until much later.

When I came back in 1999 I did it with a thirst for vengeance. I felt I was a prophet to the entire world except on my own soil, so I thought “Now they’ll hear me". And I committed the greatest mistake of my life: revenge.

I was wrong. I apologize.

This Honor received today is the proof of that mistake of mine because now that I am, for experience and maturity, someone deserving to be heard, my people recognize it openly and with proud. Thanks a lot!

José
