If you imagined all those dollars

Imagine if you had a dollar for every minute that every Honduran spent marching in protest against or in favor of something during the past week. Imagine a dollar for every minute that every Honduran spent marching in the past 20 years. Imagine a dollar for every minute that every child in Honduras has spent at home or on the streets when they should have been in the classroom learning. Honduras would be a rich country… if you imagined all those dollars.

The main problem in Honduras is not corruption or even poverty. The main problem is poor governance, which in turns leads to corruption and poverty. The people of Honduras must find a way to elect good leaders with good visions and good strategies to implement those visions… without dividing their society and alienating people and institutions that one needs to get things done. Otherwise, what you get is chaos, insults and an endless exchange of simplistic and partisan arguments of why one side is completely right and the other side is completely wrong.
