Mon histoire

Pince-moi, je rêve

Après avoir quitté ton pays, ta famille, tes amis, et la seule vie que tu connaissais; après avoir bossé comme un malade pendant si longtemps; après avoir serré les poings quand tu voulais laisser tomber; souri quand tu voulais pleurer; espérer quand il n’y avait plus d’espoir; et continué à réaliser ton rêve lorsque la réalité était devenue un cauchemar; un email comme ça, de ta compagnie, tu n’es pas prêt de l’oublier. Ca y est. C’est officiel. Je pars en formation A320—dans deux jours !

Pince-moi, je rêve…
