Is there anything more important than friendship and relationships with the people we meet? I don’t think so. Will Rogers once said, “I never met anyone I didn’t like!” I have to repeat his comment. Another man I admire greatly is Heinz Martin Adler in Berlin. He said that everyone we meet is different - just the same as the fact that there are no two fingerprints that are alike, the people we meet are different. We are allowed to describe them and their behavior, but mature people do not make value judgements. We are products of our upbringing and our environments, therefore, we have no right to say one person is “better” than another. I accept everyone I meet just as they are. And I must say, I find something likeable about every one of them.
The people on the left are some of my favorite people in Livigno and I can afford a big hug to each of them. Lora Donna, Clelia, Adriano, Denise, Margherita. Wonderful friends, whom I hope to see again.
