HAPPY BIRTHDAY FAB

Today is FABRIZIO's (aka FAB) birthday. He is turning 33. Believe me ... FAB IS A GREAT GUY ... A WONDERFUL DREAMER AND PROBABLY THE MOST HONEST AND NICE PERSON I EVER MET IN MY LIFE. I am so glad I met him and I shared with him a part of my path. He taught me so much about ... what is really life about ... and he didn't teach me through words or sermons ... only through his simple and powerful acts and decisions ...

I met him in Israel. At that time I was working in Tel Aviv as an engineer. He was working in the PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES (hopping between WEST BANK and GAZA STRIP ... but mostly GAZA STRIP) as a peace activist. He was working (actually he was a volunteer = NO MONEY EVEN FOR FOOD) for a very good Italian NGO which was running a project called OPERAZIONE COLOMBA / OPERATION DOVE. If you want to check what they are doing here their blog ... WWW.OPERATIONDOVE.ORG

During his life FAB worked as a volunteer in CECENIA, KOSOVO, PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES ... and the only message he always carried with him was that at the end of the tunnel there is PEACE ... but it must be obtained with non violent means ... violence brings only new violence ... the only way to find a "just peace" (this is a concept that you will learn in 5 minutes if you will visit the PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES) ... is only trough PEACEFULL MEANS ... and he wasn't telling that through a blog but living in the most dangerous corners of our planet, where sometimes the life of a person is least valuable than the bullett used to kill him /her ... he saw people around him day for no reason ... and he continued to beieve in his dream ...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FAB ... and please continue like this ... YOU ARE THE BEST!
