No more war
Angelo was born deaf and blind. His parents and brother did everything they could to make his life as pleasant as possible.
When he was 17, he had an accident and had to be taken to hospital. He gradually began to hear and see.
He also gradually saw the world outside the little protected world he had grown up in. Quite different and lacking in love and peace.
I was born 30 years ago. My parents were very happy with their first-born child.
They called me Angelo. But then it soon appeared that I was blind and deaf.
Yet, my parents loved me dearly and did everything they could to let me have a fine life.
Three years later, they had another child. My brother was called Daniel.
The three of them developed a special way of communicating with me.
They made a language of touch. The palm of my hands was their keyboard.
I grew up in a little protected world. Full of love and affection.
I was a happy child, because I felt the warmth of caring parents and of my dedicated brother.
They gave me everything. They took me to many places.
They had an incredible patience. I had the idea that people were all like my parents and my brother.
When I was 17, I stumbled and badly hit my head.
I had a severe concussion and had to be taken to hospital. In the hospital, I gradually started to see shadows and later heard faraway sounds.
My parents and brother could not believe it. It seemed a miracle had happened.
Very slowly I began to see and to hear.
A new world opened to me. I could see my parents and my brother. They were just wonderful.
After a few months, I started a special education.
I learned about the big world. It was beautiful but often horrible too.
My little world did not know violence. The big world is full of it.
Why have so many people lost their ability to appreciate simple things?
Why have so many people lost their ability to appreciate love or to give love and friendship?
Danellandia – Pax 21 is based on discussions about this world and its many problems with people from different backgrounds, countries, religions and age.
Danellandia was created in 2004 and defined 25 human values as the basis for its campaign to make this world a better and more just place in many fields of human activities: politics, business, the media, personal relationships, education, Nature care…
You can help to promote these values by sharing the material on this site. This world needs people and leaders who put humanity first and not money or power. People and leaders who unite others rather than create tensions, divisions, conflicts and war.
Strong human values are a passport to a sustainable, fair, green and healthy future.
The world of Peace can become a reality!
