All through history, revolutions have changed all of us. They have shaped the way we think and the way we live today. "Always be capable of feeling. any injustice committed against anyone in the world." Che Guevara is the ultimate revolutionary icon and is a symbol of rebellion, nonconformity, and social inequality. He always fought so the common man could be equal. Some call him one of the most perfect men of our century. He showed this throughout his childhood, his college days, his role in the Cuban Revolution, and his revolutionary work in Africa and South America to his death. .
Though his birth certificate says he was born June 14, 1928, Ernesto "Che" Guevara, was really born one month before. His mother, Celia de la Serna y Llosa, was really three months into her pregnancy when she was married to Ernesto Guevara Lynch. After there wedding the couple left Buenos Aries for their honeymoon where a doctor they knew delivered him and forged the birth certificate. In true Argentinean fashion they named him after his father. The newly weds didn't give their parents the news until Ernesto was one month old so they would think he was just premature.
When Ernesto was 2 years old he had his first asthma attack when he was bathing in icy waters of a swimming pool. This would curse his life forever. Shortly after this his parents moved to a drier climate, but it made no difference. One of his first words was "injection.".
Ernesto's mother taught him to read at age 4. He wrote his first letter at age 5. He read everything he could find as a kid, he read every book in his parents library. Ernesto started school at age 9. At fourteen Ernesto entered high school at Cordola and took a bus everyday from Alta Gracia. He had friends of all different social classes. He excelled in sports and literature, he became a avid reader of Marx, Engels, and Freud. .
Rugby was his main sport even though his asthma sometimes made him abandon the field.
