The arrival of a pandemic period imposes rare and challenging moments on all of us, and makes us, in this 2021, celebrate with even more enthusiasm the fact that a new stage of life has been completed. There were difficult days and nights, a permanent pain of losses that occurred of friends, family and acquaintances, a fear that insisted on concerning us of a situation of permanent chaos, alleviated by the surprising advances in science and by the moving, even heroic, dedication of health professionals.
We survive, we resist, we fight. Now, we seek to look ahead without losing sight of what is still before our eyes as a result of a dramatic historical period, and we must be aware that the situation is not yet resolved. A worrying scenario, which requires a lot of sensitivity, both to absorb what happened and to fix our eyes on the future with the same effort as always. To glimpse the possibilities and achievements that await us. Because, we continue to believe, that there are many more to come.
We renew the permanent message of faith in tomorrow and optimism with the unwavering capacity to fight that we continue to have when the objective is to seek what we believe is correct and just. A happy 2022 for everyone, full of challenges and full of victories.
