I once met a lady who used to ride tenths kilometers by bike, just to take messages to those who were hiding from the nazis… and I once met a man who risked his life to denounce the Nazi regime’s crimes and oppression, and to call for resistance.
We can be heroes and heroines. Somebody is called to be more brave than others, but sometimes we can be heroes even in simpler circumstances.
So I didn’t add a note of red in this very simple dessert, thinking that… those brave people took “the red part” away from us. Qualcuno è stato coraggioso per noi, e ci ha permesso di vivere una vita più facile.
we can have vanilla ice cream and mint syrup, for a fresh taste, and celebrate once again. But again think: still today some people are called to be heroes.
I think we should be happy for small-looking things. Maybe they’re great things, actually.
