images-26WORLD-HANDSHAKE DAY

One day an old man told to me the following words: “My son, place your hand here in the sea and you are united with the whole world.” These wise words led to an idea, a vision especially after the tsunami disaster. Now, as I am 55 years old, I would like to forward this old man’s vision, a vision that helps taking away the fear of those that have been so terribly affected by the latest disaster. Place your hand in the sea and shake hands with the whole world, feel united. Keep these words in your heart and let us create a WORLD-HANDSHAKE-DAY on 21 June. Ivan Zupa.
