Many people look at Chernobyl on HBO. I tried yesterday but I do not manage. Too much pain in my breast. On the one hand I remember everything about the Chernobyl time, Augusto who was so interested in politics and what was going on in the world. I was narrow minded, thinking of my exams and my water polo and the problems around me. I do not even remember what I voted for the referendum we had in Italy few years after about nuclear power. I start remembering that while in Torino, one professor was working to bring Chernobyl victims to Torino and I was thinking – do we still have the problem of Chernobyl so many years later? This was 1990, 4 years later.
Tonight I had a dream. I had to choose university and I did not know what to do. I thought that I liked languages and literature but that it was not easy to find a job. I did not know what to do. Few images of Chernobyl on HBO were able to bring me back to the 80’s when I did not know what to do and what was going on in the world. Do I know it now?
