Before leaving to Tunisia, I wrote a letter to my neighbor Can, to thank him for being a light, a support, an inspiration.
Praise for my neighbor
It has been 3 years since our flat front doors are less than 6 feet apart.
It has been 3 years that I have peace of mind, knowing you are there shall I lose my keys or shall the children need anything in my absence.
You taught me what true human connection means.
You showed me the power inside the simple act of starting a conversation with a stranger.
For me, you are the embodyment of a value, a skill and a goal: spreading happiness.
Thank you for inspiring all of us to make the world a better place.
