    Another man has decided to end his life after he has been fired.
    Another family now is crying her husband, her dad.
    You can die of cancer, of incident, but you cannot die cause the economic crisis has stolen your pride.
    There must be a difference between what we HAVE and what we ARE!
    A man cannot be judged only for the money.
    Look at our country..
    We live in one of the most beatiful contry in the world, full of art, culture, style.
    We grow in as a part of it, why we cannot be proud of this?
    We are infinitely much more cultered than other country, is a part of our history, we have created this civilization.
    But all you heard about Italy now is "Berlusconi, pizza, mafia, mandolino"...
    How could this happen?
    This is the worse of Italy, but there is also much more to discover. Much intellect, benevolence, culture, honesty.
    Who talk about this Italy? Who talk about the milion of people that are literally paying with their life for this economic crisis?
    The european banks decided first to kill our country, stolen our dignity and money, than they ask us to spill our blood for an economic model we don't believe in.
    But we do it, we fight every day for a work, some food, some money.
    Money...
    And then? what will happen then?
    We will be a part of a strong european market, we will earn other money.
    But who will we BE?
    Will we be better man and woman? will we improve?
    Will we be judged for our values or for our economic credibility?
    "Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto."
    I have chosen to BE a woman, i want to BE a better woman, i want to HAVE the world as home, i believe we all can BE better, even HAVING less money.

    I apologize to all the readers for this passionate speech dedicated to my country, but i love it, i'm proud to be italian and i won't have this massacre any more!
