The Millionth Child
Being a lucky baby was a simple matter of being born the right day, at the right time. Or at least that’s how it seemed.
In the early morning of September 4, 1958, in a small shack in the village of Ocú, the most eagerly awaited baby of Panama’s history was born: Cándido Aizprúa Guevara. Among all the celebrations, the government had promised to give a great future to the child who completed its first million residents. Making the government keep that promise, of course, wouldn’t be so easy.
