Best Friends Work Best

En el largo caminar de la vida, nos vamos encontrando miles de personajes, unos desaparecen así como llegaron, otros hacen parte de nuestra vida sólo por un rato; pero hay unos que dejan huella en nuestras vidas para siempre. Así es mi voluntario estrella, así le llamo, es mi gran amigo, mi gran compañero de trabajo, un docente ejemplar, quien entrega su alma en el trabajo, sin olvidar que trabaja con seres humanos, no con máquinas. Nunca olvidaré a James, no importa el tiempo que pase porque nuestro trabajo se entrelazó con la amistad y ese es el mejor puente entre 2 colegas, entre dos culturas, entre dos mundos. Le agradezco a Dios por presentarme a James y a James por permitirme conocer su mundo, su trabajo y su buen corazón.

In the long walk through life, we meet thousands of characters, some of them disappear in the same way they came to us; some others become part of our lives only for a while, but there are some others that leave their personal stamp in our lives forever. That is much like my awesome volunteer, as I call him.  He is my great friend, my efficient coworker, and an excellent teacher. He is the kind of person who gives his soul to his work without forgetting that he works with human beings and not with machines. I won’t forget James ever, no matter how much time passes because our work is bound with our friendship and that’s the best bridge between two coworkers, between two cultures, between two very different worlds. I thank God for introducing me to James and I thank James for sharing his world, his work, and his very good heart with me.
