Joe or Gustavo is my uncle. I miss him so much! I just wish that I could see him. Everything changed that day of the shooting. It suddenly occured to me that he was going to get arrested. At that moment I told myself that I had to be brave for him. It all happened so fast, I was in complete shock at that moment. Those days of my life were very dificult. It's like really sad not to get to see my uncle. I wish that when my uncle gets moved, I finally get to see him.
