Our life…God’s loving gift of hope by Ryan Pisani

In life we meet many people. We meet them through our daily life, on the bus, at school, at work, at the shop, our neighbours. With some we talk, with others we may have said a word, and with others we try to avoid altogether.

Each person has his or her background - history, family, culture. Even we have our own background, affected by how we have been brought up through our family, education system and circle of friends. These continuously and perpetually shape up how we act and react. Many times our reaction to other people around us lead us to ‘judge’ what is normal and not.

The landowner tells you, “no problem, there is no need to pay me…. Just give me your children to work for me for the next 2 years”. And you accept because you do not think you have any other choice. You won’t see your children for the next, yes, 12 years.

This is the reality for over 40 million children in India.

Young people from nine different countries, namely Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Malta, Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Belgium and Poland met in the Salesian House in Kobylisy, the largest Salesian community in the Czech Republic.
