The lost of friends and classmates
Lost of friends and classmates during my bachelor's studies was a situation that change my way of regard toward life. I enrolled at Caldas University for studying Geology at an age of 18 years old. When I was in third semester, in 1985, The Nevado del Ruiz volcano did eruption, killing near of 20.000 people in Armero village. This is the worst natural disaster in Colombia. At moment of this tragedy, one group of classmates were in a fieldwork for the Palaeontology course, looking fossils near Armero. They were at this town for getting a hotel and sleeping there when the eruption started. Nine roommates and the professor died this night when a flood passed by the streets of village. For me was a very hard experience, because I could not understand why this young people was in the wrong place in the wrong date. I knew them and they were valuable people, but I did not enough time for share with them. I learned at this moment that life is short and whatever can happens. After that, I realize that One should share with loved ones as much as possible, because It is not possible know how long We will be together.
