An important person!

When any people question me about a important people in the contemporary history, I always remember at John Paul II, the pope 5 years ago. His true name was Karol Józef Wojtyła. He was born in the Polish town of Wadowice, a small city 50 kilometers from Krakow, on May 18, 1920. He was the youngest of three children.

John Paul II has been acclaimed as one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century, He did a lot of things with the purpose of help the different countries, cultures, religions and the people above all. In Chile, when came here he could avoid a impending war with Argentina. For these reasons a so much more this papa was very dear. There are people that didn´t believe in the religion but they said that him had a special halo, his face reflected peace, love, tranquillity and compassion. It stayed demonstrated when He forgave on the prison at the criminal that shot him.

His admirable capacity to learn other language was a important characteristic of him, add when he assumed as papa, he was a young with many forces and longing of do some. All the day in the morning he practised sports, was the first at his category in have a different life style like pope.

When I watched the pope on the TV and especially when Marcelo Salas visited him on the Vatican with his daughters, I wanted to be with him too. As said, his presence was special and that struck me. I thought in goods advice for face life, I had conformed with touch him, hug him and told him thanks, thanks for the peace and his capacity for unify rivalries. Maybe is few, some shallow but is with sincerity.
