A person I admire

Panagiotis Georgiadis, Greece

5thB_english school essay

Can you imagine a person who is reliable and honest, someone who can make you laugh no matter what? Maybe someone who has a golden heart and a spirit of a child, even though he is 67 years old? How about someone who has all of these personality traits? I couldn’t think of anyone like that, until I met my best friend, Walter Pistelli.

Walter wasn’t really attractive. He was quite tall, he had white hair and usually wore glasses. But then you noticed his warm smile and kind eyes. I first met Walter when I was 4 years old and, naturally, he soon became my closest friend. He always made me laugh, even when I was sad, he was always smiling and he was very optimistic, always seeing the bright side of things. He was very generous – he always shared his things with us when we needed them.

I honestly can’t think of anything bad about Walter. He was, is and will be my best friend.
Rest in peace, my dear friend.

Panagiotis, 2012

    Mi ha emozionato molto leggere questa composizione eseguita per la scuola di inglese da Panajoti, ragazzino di 12 anni di Kavala, molto sensibile, riservato e intelligente, e che mi ha fatto il grande regalo di permettermi di pubblicarla sul blog, insieme alla copertina di un altro suo lavoro di ricerca eseguito per il 1° anno di ginnasio e dedicato a Walter.
    Grazie, mio giovane amico!

    Riposa in pace . Si piccolo amico sconosciuto, mio fratello Walter riposa in pace . Ci ha lasciato con un sorriso nel volto che si apriva all’infinito, all’eternità. Nicola, il mio nipotino di 8 anni che si ricorda dello zio Walter di Bologna, a Natale dello scorso anno ha chiesto di scrivere una lettera a Babbo Natale perchè lo facesse ritornare. Per lui Babbo Natale ha questo potere. Voi bambini siete meravigliosi ! Un abbraccio a tutti i suoi amici con grande affetto e tenerezza .
    Stefania,
