In one of my July posts I wrote about the IFFD’s International Family Enrichment Congress (www.iffd.org) that we were going to hold on October 18-20. It was entitled: Family, the Face of Humanity, and it is the good cause that prevented me from writing for two weeks in a row. How fulfilling life is when you manage to forget a little about yourself!
We left Barcelona on Thursday in full social convulsion, we arrived in London in full political turmoil and, shortly after arriving, we met our Ecuadorian and Chilean friends, who are also experiencing moments of political and popular agitation. Afterwards, we greeted many others, up to the 70 countries of the five continents members of IFFD. Although not everyone could be physically there, everyone was in spirit.
Boarding the plane back last night, I began to check whatsapps and I found a sentence from my dear sister-in-law and neighbor, who has accompanied us to London to present a precious social action project, Families without Barriers, and which definitely inspired me this post: “Let the politicians take off and let the families do!”
