The region is already visible, and we have initiated a permanent dialogue between ourselves and with many other countries on the planet. We are a region of similar cultures and similar emotions. Our dreams come together; we make goals, particular purposes ... Now is the best time in history to be alive said the Oxford Martin Commission. We have megatrends that mark important changes in the evolution of society, many of them tend to persist in the long term although sometimes their impacts are not immediately evident.

Faced with all the adversities that haunt us and all the misfortunes that our peoples, our marginalized, our displaced, are living, we can not renounce our future; we can not remain the gray, oppressed, vilified spot. Those of us here believe in the future and strive to build it day by day. Although at every moment the soul empties with hopelessness and pain when seeing how what is produced can be destroyed in seconds. Despite that, we keep walking, because ahead there is more chance of finding our historical utopias: Latin American integration and the end of empires. As León Felipe said, the issue is not that someone arrives first, but with everyone and on time. We are in the precise present, sheltered in the still. Eight years ago this was a utopia, that which is always before us, but as Galeano says, the utopia for that purpose, to teach us to walk. From Cuba, Fabio Grobart inspires a united future, “with everyone and for the good of all”, in search of a grammatical time that had been lost, that time is the future ...
