Everything Will Be All Right

I have been so moved by the beautiful scenes of singing and children’s rainbows on the balconies across Italy. The cover picture for Family Matters Switzerland was created to celebrate silver linings even in the darkest of times. With thanks for the rainbows.

I was moved
by your singing
Your resilience
your spirit.

So moved
I was crying
So I drew with the children
A picture with rainbows.

To show you
We care
We share
Your hope.

I was moved
By your singing
We lift our voices
with you.

Andrà tutto bene.’
