World on the Move in 2008
Wednesday, 28 January 2009

I don't believe people who say that everything is bad, that the human race is going the wrong way or that there are so many wrong things in the world.

I think we live in a perfect world, and I think we are perfect. I want to believe that! I believe in people, I believe in our world, I believe in life! No one can take it from me:)

We discover new things, we achieve records, we build, we just have fun. Celebrate just living and the world will show you only its bright side!
