…..23 years ago….1989….A great year for human rights..Dalai lama peace Nobel prize (I didn’t know that Tibet would take a so big place in my life and my …heart….the”iron curtain”…the Berlin wall destroyed…Rostropovich playing “cello” in the collapses..and the drop of d ceausescu in Romania.

These 3 major events gave me the strength and the envy to begin my adventures with Amnesty International (adventures but positives adventures!)

In my first letter I said that I had time but no money…so they sent me booklets…how to write to a king..etc …

I was already handicapped so …I typed more slowly that now… 

I used only one finger to type and the machine was provided to me by the owner’s wife of the institution where I live …(MAS Saint Vital) who lent me a small write machine…of violet color… very archaic…

Sometimes I needed several days to type a letter..but I enjoyed..

I helped the world…for a handicapped person….it’s…won….beau…simply great!!!…

that’s how I began defending Human rights…
