Are you an EU or a UK citizen?
I learned that together everyone win, but what happens to those that want to stay alone. I learned that diversity drives progression and innovation, but what happens to a country that prefers to protect its national heart. During this year I have read and wrote a lot about the vital importance of establishing networks and communicating with others. Thus, my question is: what happens if the country where you live does not want to be connected to the rest of the EU?
Due to the economic impact that the results of this referendum will have today is going to be remembered as the Black Swan day, as many newspapers have named it. While someone like Nigel Forage believes that today is the best day in their life, I simply believe that today is a sad day for everyone because each single EU citizen today lost an important part of its community. The entire society lost, because million and millions of people today feel more alone than yesterday! The EU lost, because it was not able to achieve its vision! The UK lost, because from today this country cannot feel itself any more part of a big community, losing the opportunity to play a key role in making Europe a better place for next generations.
I think today has been a crucial day for Europe! I wish that our governments could seriously start to consider this mistake as a great learning opportunity and work harder together for creating a stronger sense of belonging to the dream of EU as a community, founded on passion and aimed on supporting our rights, peace and wealth!!!!
