Hold My Hand and Make me Stay
Hold My Hand and Make me Stay

My greatest point of life was the day I met my new friends at a small coffee shop in Pristina, where they work. So many smiling faces makes you forget how evil the world is outside. The day I understood how special I am was the day when a friend with Down syndrome hugged me and told me "you are my best friend, please be forever." That was the day I forgot to worry and I decided to look at the world from the beautiful side as my friends do. I can absolutely say they are the reason I am who I am today and the reason I will continue to be. Every smile from one of them is worth millions of happy moments to me. Please be grateful to every friend you have who has Down syndrome. They have special chromosomes that make the stars smile.
