All these men were revolutionaries. Outside her parents’ bedroom, she tells God that she wants to go to the demonstrations. She tries on several different hats in a mirror saying that she will go to the demonstration as Che Guevara or maybe Fidel Castro. As she looks at herself in the mirror, God quietly walks out of her bedroom. She looks for him when she realizes he has left. Not finding him, she storms down to her parents’ bedroom and demands that they take her with them to the demonstration the next day saying, "For a revolution to succeed, the entire population must support it." Her parents tell her that it is dangerous and that she can participate later on. Her father takes her to bed as she begs to be a part of the demonstrations. Lying in bed, crying, she cries out for God but "that night he didn't come."
