“When I was a child and television was black and white, I remember I always watched an Italian TV program hosted by Alberto Manzo, a teacher, who, with great clarity and effectiveness, helped illiterate adults to learn reading and writing. The title of this TV show was “it’s never too late”.
It really never is. It’s never too late also for all of us, who know reading and writing and know that it is very important to treat others politely and respectfully: we know that we should always try to better ourselves and learn something important for our everyday life.
When, during the RIDE TO MOSCOW journey, and specifically on last day morning, in Mozhaysk, when the Major of the city, together with all authorities, welcomed us in the city with a beautiful party, I understood the importance of the words “thank you”. I remember two teachers came with many children who had been taken away from their families due to family hardships, and when we said hello to them, these children replied with one single Italian word…GRAZIE (thank you). A very touching and moving moment…a simple but very meaningful and appreciated word “thank you”.
We should learn to use these words more often every day, a simple “thank you” could be a sweet touch to the soul. Thank you for being here, thank you for who you are and for what you are doing, thank you for your kindness, thank you, thank you, thank you.
To all RIDE TO MOSCOW people I would like to send my personal “thank you”, and I will never tire of saying it.”
