More than words

Me dejasteis sin palabras...
...Ahora que me ha vuelto el habla, os explico lo que me habéis hecho sentir:
Estoy emocionada, he leído vuestra tarjeta ya no se cuantas veces, y confieso que incluso se me ha saltado alguna lagrimita. Lagrimas de las buenas, de esas que se escapan al final de las películas, cuando después de hora y media, por fin, los personajes a quienes hemos cogido cariño, encuentran un final feliz.

Y así ha sido este final, sin películas, pero de película. De película con final feliz.

Esta noche, como casi todas las noches, la luna se pasea frente a mi ventana, y hoy me parece más bonita que otras veces, y esto es porque me habéis hecho sentir que se puede luchar contra la monotonía y a veces ganar pequeñas batallas.

Con las fuerzas que me habéis dado prometo seguir intentándolo.

Me encanta saber que vosotros, la juventud, los que pronto tomareis las riendas de este loco mundo, venís tan buenos.

Haber si entre todos lo hacemos más divertido y más humano.

Con ese deseo, y con el de que seáis tremendamente felices me despido, no sin antes agradeceros vuestro esfuerzo, y por supuesto vuestro cariño.

Besos, muchos y felices

The happiest moment of your life

Nepalese Youth Opportunity Foundation transforms the lives of impoverished Nepalese children by providing them with what should be every child's birthright – education, housing, medical care, and loving support.

In the video above, Nirmala, a blind woman whose life was transformed thanks to this ONG, talks about the happiest moment of her life. Once you've listened to Nirmala, you'll realize how lucky we are and how easy are things for us... Anyway, as I don't think any of us share Nirmala's happiest moment, I ask you to write about the most memorable time of your entire life.

~Write a comment in this post, telling about the happiest moment of your life :)

Answer the questions listening to the video.

It has an intermediate level because I couldn' make very difficult questions with this video. I have chosen it because I really like Woody Allen, and I think he is very funny.

He was invited to de Oscar's Ceremony of 2002, the year after the terrorist attacks in New York. I can't tell you any more... but it has to do with that. I hope you find it funny.
