Spain 2011 - Thanks from EMAUS Print E-mail

You can not imagine how much I regret that your team lost the match on Tuesday. I felt sorry for the affection I have for you in particular, and the organization that you represents and also for all the followers who have flown to Spain to see the match.

I also thought of the number of European’s O.n.g .that they do not know about you; that they will not have happiness with your charitable initiative, like the children of Emaus had.

In addition, all the Scottish people whom I interacted with - including the game-viewers- behaved like true gentlemen, without a bad gesture, or a cry, cheered up after the game without resentment, and allowed themselves to have a picture taken with the Spanish people, giving them their beautiful hats and colorful, full of pins from halfway around the world.

True gentlemen!

And, what should I say about the satisfaction of the children who watched the game? For them, it was all new, never been before in a stadium, their look in their eyes, his gestures, his admiration for the players who have only seen on TV.

I'm sure they'll never forget that day, which for them was full with magic!
And as for you, you are my friend of heart and forever.

You will never imagine my gratitude for everything you do for us. The photos from Monday can not reflect more happiness on the faces of our children; they talk and talk and never end about the football match that they play with you. I'm sure that the next day in the school, they didn´t spoke of something else.

And your postcard with the beautiful scenery of Scotland ... and a wonderful message that speaks of the good heart of the person who writes it!

I will carry it in my chest, and on the left side, where the heart is, that wonderful Celtic brooch, with that bright red highlights in it, like a drop of blood, blood of two brothers, Celtic ancestors in our two cultures, remembering that in Scotland lives a very, very good man, who heads an institution to help the most disadvantaged children, with a heart as big as he, looking clean and happy to help those who need it.

And me, who I am one of the lucky people who know you, I wish for you and yours: "Slainte agus huile beannachd mhor duit."

I am sending you a photo where Simon, the youngest child of the house, It's very funny, "Mr. Monkey", hanging from the tree, and the child giving the drum is almost bigger than him. You know you can not post the picture, unless you cover his face.

A big hug friend, my love, my sincere affection and admiration.
