Among Valter Baldaccini's thoughts: commitment to unity

As we told you, among the writings of Valter Baldaccini, which we are re-reading at the Foundation in these suspended days, we have found many words of hope.

Another strong message in Valter Baldaccini's speeches, is the invitation to be united, to stay close, to feel like a family and to cultivate authentic relationships.

"I am more convince than ever that a family environment like that of this evening, while aware of the challenges that lie ahead, encourages us to give the best of ourselves." (Social Dinner, 13 September 2010)

The idea of unity must be lived in all areas of one's daily life; in the family, with friends and at work, where it was essential for Valter Baldaccini to feel welcomed, listened to, respected, to feel like actors in a common project.

"And it is in the face of difficulty and challenges that the need for unity makes itself felt even stronger. Just as we are all doing these days: being close, even if far away, gives us strength and courage. To succeed in this difficult task we must feel united more than ever, each one of us doing our assigned tasks the best way possible." (Letter to employees, April 1, 1987)

Being united also makes us more responsible because it commits us to take care each other. For Valter this idea has its roots in the principle of universal brotherhood: "love your neighbor as yourself". At the basis of every relationship there must be respect and an acceptance of others. It is the responsibility of everyone to contribute in changing the world.

"In the future, global challenges await us and only with passion, attachment and commitment can we guarantee our success in line with the guidelines we have set ourselves. Above all, we are convinced that we can create a better world only when we have respect for each person." (Easter blessing, April 2, 2007)

Only by being united can we give concrete help to those who are most in difficulty.
