Let me explain! Today I visited a coleque of mine who is in hospital right now and tomorrow will suffer a surgical intervention on the brain, due to a tumora which invades her brain and make a lot of damage there. So I went to the hospital and talk to her but there were some big moment, silent ones when I did not find my words, what to say, how to encourage her .I know in this kind of situations you have to be strong with a good moral, before the operation, so to say he right word to a person is crucial. Do you know always what to say in such situation, do you find your words?
