This morning I was on mountain, fully enjoying the first and sunny hours of the day, before the incoming storm.
A nice and short trip among billions of daffodils and young, fresh grass... The first raindrops, the beauty of a changing light. Serene, quite happy, as usual up there.

Then at home, just checking my mail, I discovered the horrible facts of Brindisi. As you probably know, unknown beasts placed a bomb based on three gas bottles in front of a school, striking a student bus and killing a 16 years old student. Several other girls are badly wounded; an unbelievable, never-happened attack in Italy, and this Country saw a very long terroristic period from 1969 to the late '80s.

So, without any rhetoric in this Country whose politicians and governments stole whatever remaining chances to the youngsters, I feel obliged to offer this little flower for them. For these young girls, massacred by surprise for no reasons, like their coevals in Afghanistan or Iraq. For their classmates, for Brindisi. For whoever lost the remaining trust in this state.
