Thank you truly for the support that you are giving to Heroes Company!
Only a week has gone by since our presentation and your affirmations of esteem are already numerous indeed. Thank you again. Of course, at this moment, it is important to keep the attention alive, to speak out, to get informed. The risk of losing the emotional phase in only a flash is huge. We must all engage ourselves so that this does not occur, we must always keep in mind those persons who still today, at this very moment, are fighting for the freedom of their country, requesting democracy and justice. Let’s not leave them in the shadows; let’s always keep them on our minds. They need our help!
I have read your messages on the blog and am happy to see so much interest from many of you who want to get involved. We want to change attitudes, to acknowledge that it is important to give our utmost support to those persons who are fighting strenuously for a better future, to offer support to the heroes of our times.
I lived the suffering in Laos in the first person. This beautiful Country holds a sad reality: it was the most bombarded after World War II. Above all, the so-called “cluster bombs” were then used, which still today provoke an incredible number of deaths. The Laotian territory is still very much plagued by unexploded bombs, which continue to explode, causing deaths and injuries still today, some thirty years after their drop. It is frightful. When the war gear does not kill, it produces terrible amputations in people. The families are dealt with continuous mourning; taking the wrong road and ending up on a bomb splinter, this is what could definitely change one’s life, torture it even. And yet, these people have such a will to live … to smile, they are kind towards the world. Those who survive often cannot return to a life of dignity, and this is not right. This is why I wanted that first aid arrive here. The purpose is to have prostheses reach them in order to give new possibilities to all those injured who lost a limb due to these cowardly and uncontrollable attacks.
I have asked for the teamwork of Vittorio and that of his staff, who have followed me for fourteen years during my professional career. Now, I would like that they put their skills and experience at work for this cause, in which I truly believe.
Several friends have called me and have written to me enthused about wanting to lend their support to Heroes Company. We are fine-tuning everything; some time is necessary to properly structure the organization. As soon as we are ready, we will notify you as to how you can help. We need everyone. Above all, the Heroes of our times must no longer remain on their own. Let us give them also our voice.
