Since I remember, my family used to celebrate lots of events, from birthdays to Christmas, and it was a very good thing, because my family was very united. But, in 2011 I had an unforgettable Easter. It was amazing.
When there were 15 days for Easter I received an invitation from my older cousin to go with him and the “Médicos sem fronteiras” to Haiti and there, throw an Easter party for the needy children. In the first moment I hesitated but after seeing flabbergasting pictures taken after the earthquake that happened some years before, I decided to go. It really lent me weight to go.
I can’t say it was better than the Easters I used to spend with my family. It was different. I had a feeling I had never had before. Seeing the smile in the face of each boy and girl after receiving their Easter egg; this feeling of helping people, I was not happy, I was ecstatic. That’s why, after this splendid experience, I am doing it again, but this time, 2012, I am going to a Quilombo in Brazil with my school.
