[STC002750] The poem begins with the line “In the year 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue…” Where exactly did he come to rest? Christopher Columbus’ initial point of arrival in the Americas was in the Caribbean islands, which were also his last destination. However, when it came to his exploration of the coastline of South America, he first stepped foot on the Paria Peninsula, which is located in what is now the country of Venezuela. He claimed the land for Spain and named it Isla Santa (Holy Island). However, there remains a debate about whether or not Columbus should be viewed as a hero, notably in Venezuela. There was a bronze statue of Christopher Columbus that stood in Caracas at one point, but it was torn down in 2004 during a demonstration that took place on the 512th anniversary of Columbus’ arrival. Following the discovery of the guilty verdict in the explorer’s fictitious trial, the statue was removed from its previous location and never replaced. Just one illustration of how people who write history shape its course, while those who actually lived through it can never forget its lessons.
