My son, Marco, left us this final poem before taking his life and changed our lives forever. I have dedicated my life to ‘living a life worth living’.
“I think things are worth doing
because they are difficult.
We do things not to achieve
something on the outside but to develop
something on the inside. We must push our
boundaries of what we know
or don’t know about the world
and ourselves. I may have not
achieved much at the time of
death, but I have at least lived
the life worth living.”
