Story by U2@NYC

Pablo (U2@NYC) is a very talented witer, he wrote a story in relation to the events of September 11.
The story is in Spanish but I'm sure he would be happy to translate the meaning of it for the non-Spanish speakers.

Thank You Pablo!

I already read it and it´s really good, he expresses his feelings and ideas very well, in this case, the feeling of being terrified by something, the absolute fear and its consequences.

He is also helping me to improve my poor spanish, sending me his work. For both, your story and your help, I wanna say thank you Pablo. Keep up your good job.

What a great story!

Loosely translated from the bottom...
Men are different from the doves. They often put up many difficult obstacles to try to reach a goal. The worse of these is fear, the one that causes us to often doubt what we do... you must learn from the fear but that do not let it overtake you..

Just curious if there was any inspiration from Peace On Earth? It really reminded me a bit of that song.

I think we are all still a bit afraid after Sept 11 - I know I am - I hope things regain some sense of normalcy soon.

Your stories are always great Pablo! Thanks for sharing it.

Yes, Pablo expresses himself very well.
I truly enjoy reading his Spanish, good Spanish is hard to come by around here.

Thank you all. I guess that someday I will start writing in English but it is so much easier to express my feelings in Spanish for now...

No particular inspiration on Peace on Earth. One thing I normally do is write while listening to U2 and Peace on Earth played a couple of times while writing so there might be some sort of a subliminal message in there.

Thanks for reading it. Truly an honor.

Peace on Earth.

Pablo

It's much easier to count in Spanish too, at lease for me.

I used to work in a spainish restaurant for 8 years.

While working there, I used to tell the cook this one phrase and it drove him nuts.

Here it is:

"?Por que to hace mucho ruido en cama de Jose?

hahaha TheU2, that would drive me crazy too!
I'm teaching Spanish to a co-worker but I'm afraid she only wants to learn the bad words.

The best word in Spainish is:

Esposas = Handcuffs

I find that so funny.
