A Life Lesson From Giancarlo Murisciano


On December 31st 2014, 28-year-old Giancarlo Murisciano wasn’t out celebrating like everyone else, bringing in the new year.

He stayed in, caring for his grandmother who has Alzheimer’s disease.

He posted the picture below on his Facebook page.


He is holding his 87 year old grandmother, just as she did him, when he was a boy.

It is a genuinely heartwarming story.

Although the post is in Italian, here is the translation from the page…

“So this is love. The 31st of December wasn’t the highlight of my life, but this is also part of it. Once you kept me in your lap, granny, now I do the same, without shame and without fear, to remind everyone that life must be lived and must be fought… You always have to be present in life.

That is my wish for 2015, having someone beside me to protect and comfort, but also to keep happy and smile with.”

What a great life lesson, from a young man who seems to know what means the most in life.
