recognition ceremony at Palacio Nacional

Last Friday I had the honour of attending a ceremony at the presidential palace (Palacio Nacional) to recognize the work of the rescue teams that work so hard, day and night, to save people and recover bodies after the September 19 quake. 

It was moving to be surrounded by so many people that were willing to risk their lives, that put aside everything and anything to help others. Sure, the president also acknowledged everybody that assisted in any capacity, but you cannot but feel small next to these real heroes.

Anyhow, bravo to them, and bravo to everybody that helped.
