Dede Mirabal: The
Forgotten Sister
The story says, “She is plucking her
bird of paradise of its dead branches,
leaning around the plant every time
she hears a car” (Alvarez 3).
In this quote, Dede is seen as a tree
that refuses to die. She consistently
“plucks” herself of things that may
deter of her goal of educating
everyone about the heroic sacrifices of
her sisters.
Dede Mirabal: The
Forgotten Sister
The story goes on to say, “The Mirabal
sisters are not known there, for which
she is also sorry for it is a crime that
they should be forgotten, these
unsung heroines of the underground”
(Alvarez 3).
The quote from the story shows that
although many do not hear of her
story, the survivor, she has committed
her life to ensuring that all Dominicans
know the story of the sacrifices made
by her sisters.
