Dear friends of Sant'Egle, today I want to share with you a reflection that has deeply touched my heart.
In these past 7 days, I have become aware of that word Common sense it doesn't have the same meaning for everyone.
Zingarelli defines it thus: "the ability to behave with wisdom and a sense of proportion, adhering to generally shared criteria of opportunity".
Two new experiences touched me deeply this week and I understood that common sense has different parameters and perceptions in human beings.
I naively thought that those who had the word 'common sense' intrinsic in their vocabulary would never harm, in any material or psychological way, any form of animal, vegetable or human life.
I've always thought that one's freedom ended when the freedom of others was somehow invaded or injured.
Tough week, dear friends, we had guests who were disrespectful of our planet and to make matters worse, we had to suffer a rave with 20,000 participants who mistreated an area inhabited by protected flora and fauna.
An event that deprived everyone of sleep for 5 long nights.
Now we just have to roll up our sleeves, clean up the mess left and hope that common sense becomes contagious.
Thank you for being part of the change, together with us at Sant'Egle.
Erika and Alexander
