The article focuses on Pedro Rossello's March to End the Colony in Puerto Rico. The author notes that since Rossello has started his march, the media coverage has been negative. He observes that reporters who cover the activity have a premeditated purpose of taunting Rossello or provoking him to have a public argument and write a negative news report. The author recalls the day he joined the march. The author calls on the U.S. Congress to accept the democratic decision of the majority of Puerto Ricans.
