An Italian popular say reads: Forza e coraggio che dopo Aprile viene Maggio.
Find strength and courage and May will arrive just after April.
Not much of a discovery: time keeps rolling and that there is no way to stop it. And possibly the unpredictable future will not be necessarily easy. But, that old say wants to remind us that inside we can find our courage and our strength. Inspired by the strength and courage of flowers and plants, no matter of where their seeds land. The courage to live our lives, the strength to face the challenges, the courage to be ourselves and the strength to be a stand for it. Let's find them. Let's encourage each other to find them and to believe in ourselves. And to stand together more than ever, looking up to the future, no matter how bleak at times it might appear. So much darkness and stupidity, injustice and horrors are offered daily by almost all the media. Business is thriving on instilling fear and doubts on our future. Governments are counting on that to control and manipulate people and laws for the benefit of small elites.
Let's not buy into that. Let's not succumb to the confusion and discouraging news, to the induced depression and disappointment generated by the action of a few greedy powerful sad humans.
Let's break through the chains of this induced inertia, let's shake off the dust of heavy thoughts, let's push ourselves up and sprout out with all the amazing energy we all have, deep inside. To reach for the sky, toward the light of the sun, breathing fresh air and drinking clear water, eating well, smiling, helping others, dancing. Giving deeper meanings to our days and to our existence, with simple actions and small steps toward a renewal of what's around us, this beautiful world that we can't let it be trashed by blindfolded humans. We can make a change, we can spread seeds of strength and courage. We can believe in human wisdom. I believe we can. I still believe we can.
