A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to read the text by Carlos, a 13 year old student who obtained the editorial prize in a contest for the best narratives written by young people in his province.

He expresses: “my experiences, what I live, I like to write down, I like that they not be forgotten, I like the idea that eternity not swallow them up… because at the end, everything written is a privilege, it can never be forgotten.”

We are overwhelming surrounded by negative news, making it seem that it is the only reality that exist and we do not see life from another side, the life that is present in dreams and desires, going beyond its own possibilities, making them a reality; there are persons who extend their hands and oblige us to remember that there is always a reason for hope.

Keeping in mind that the written word remains, it allows us to know the work and life of other persons, the fruit of their thoughts and their actions, it empowers us while making us more humble, and it humanizes and teaches us.

Sharing what we value, what moves us, what touches us deeply… is an exercise of enrichment and mutual support, one more opportunity to relish the positive side of daily life and to appreciate the efforts of a job well done. Because, at the end, to write about life with a hope-filled gaze is a gift, a generous act of dedication, a way of sharing our grain of sand to a History made word.
