THE WORD OF WISDOM

The word is sacred – it must be respected.

The word is Knowledge – it must be exalted.

The word is Joy – must be celebrated.

 

The word is a game of chess in which there is neither king nor queen.

The word is a game of checkers in which there are no pieces to be played.

The word is Christ the Redeemer: it is Love, it is Charity, it is Passion.

 

The word was brought by a people from far away who desired it.

We communicate through the word. The word is ancestral.

The demagogue who converts it into money must be denied,

Because he offends a tradition, offends a culture.

 

With fury and fire I celebrate the speeches that have changed the course of History –

That without aim walks unburdened of sorrows.

With fury and fire I celebrate the Men and Women who transform the word,

They revive it and turn it into bridges of dialogue and communication.
