Did you know that Yours Truly's father was a senator? Yes! An honest politician, they exist, oh yes! He passed over ten years ago, and now the first volume about his mission and career in politics is being presented in the Italian Senate. Here's the invitation in case you'd like to attend. RSVPs are a must. All attendees' names to be notified three days prior to the event.
Yours Truly cried when this was announced to her. There is such need for models of politicians who are honest, who do it for passion, for love. How can a new generation be inspired if the models are unknown? This is a first step.
In the country of the Borgias, favoritism is an ancient tradition. Nepotism, pulling the ropes for your own. Yet Yours Truly's father repudiated this to the point that both his children ended up making their lives and careers abroad. Isn't that evidence enough that honesty in politics is a sacrifice hard enough to bear? Oh well . . .
Now consider for a moment that Senator Anderlini was a poet. Being a good poet helps a great deal if one wants to be passionate and honest in politics. I helps a lot more than being a god attorney, Yours truly would like to claim. Why? Because poets tend to understand things from another persons' perspective.
It would be great to have you all. Diversity is so important. And there are all kinds of absolutely interesting people in Rome who would share many of the values of Yours Truly's dad. Peace, non-violence, authenticity, integrity, intermediation. If you feel inspired, let us know. However, we suggest some knowledge of Italian as a prerequisite. It's a 3 1/2 hour presentation! Here's the invite:
