Giancarlo Murisciano recently posted a picture on Facebook on New Year’s Eve that broke the hearts of people around the world. It shows him cradling his 87-year-old grandmother, who suffers from Alzheimer’s. It was liked 400,000 times and shared 37,000 times, as it shows that real people still suffer from this terrible disease.
Giancarlo wrote that he shared the picture “without shame or fear” to remind people in the new year that “life should always be lived.” Let’s hope we all heed the message.
We only have a short time on Earth, with terrible diseases like Alzheimer’s able to strike anyone at any time. We should all live every day to the fullest, just like Giancarlo and his grandmother. Cherish the ones you love.
