Aldous Huxley said that words can be like X-rays: used appropriately they go through everything.

R.'s story can attest to this.

A family loss first, another of the many recurring hyperinflations in Argentina later, the domestic economy had suffered.

“It was as if from being 100, suddenly we had become 25”, he exemplifies.

For this reason, at the age of 18, he decided to work in the free time that school gave him in order to save some money, leave his province and go to university.

This is how he began to collaborate in administrative tasks at a service station.

One day, one of the owners, Mr. B., asked him why he did it.

R. then told him about his dream: to go to college and become a lawyer. 

The man looked at him surprised and, without anesthesia, blurted out: “But how are you going to study law?

Her father was a marble worker ”.

Many years have passed, but R. is still moved when she evokes those words.

Luckily for him, a long time ago, someone had pronounced others, very different ones.

It was when he was 6 years old, when he was about to start first grade.

Hand in hand with his mother, he arrived at the school where his older brothers also studied, very good students and very outstanding.

Mother and son appeared before who would be R.'s teacher and, with the best of intentions -there are no manuals to learn how to be parents- the woman told Miss Margot: "I hope that he will come out with a good mix between his brother and his sister.

May she have his intelligence and her discipline.”

R. recounts that, intimidated by this expectation, he remained motionless, staring into the teacher's green eyes.

Margot was clear.

She gently took his hand and, almost whispering to her, she told him: “It doesn't matter what your brothers have been like.

You are going to be the best version of yourself.

I believe in you".

R., today a successful lawyer, says that those words marked him with fire.

I wish the Margot ladies of this world could multiply to counteract so many nefarious gentlemen B.
