Love of Italy MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   Last year my school went on a two-week trip to Italy.We flew to Milan, and went to Rome, Florence, Assisi, Capri and Bologna.We visited many historical sites, including St. Peter's Cathedral, theStatue of David and the home of Marco Polo. We ate the best pizza I evertasted; the crust was very thin and really cheesy. My favorite city isVenice, the city surrounded by water. When we arrived I was madespeechless by the romance of the city. The people were beautiful and thecity made me want to fall in love. I have grown up in a Spanish-speakingfamily, and since Italian and Spanish are similar, I could order mymeals and speak with people.

I fell head over heels for Italy,especially Venice. According to the famous legend, because I threw acoin into the Trevi Fountain in Rome, I am destined to return.

Favorite Quote:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."
Marianne Williamson

Nicely done! I really want to go to Italy...I always have.
