Social development and solidarity are the cornerstones of any civil society that has the well-being of the population under all aspects, not just economic ones. Too often the indicators that measure the life of the inhabitants of a territory do not take into consideration some fundamental values that are a decisive part of everyone’s experience. They are difficult to measure, especially if it is done with strictly statistical and mathematical criteria, however they have an enormous weight and impact on which they are realized socially within which they are realized. They are usually intangible assets whose nature strongly affects the state and the condition of those who are often the recipient. Solidarity, sharing, understanding, love for the other, the gift, are together that added value that contribute to improving the life of every human being. In short, giving and receiving becomes a unicum that makes us better. The Covid affair has made us all a little more fragile, alone and too focused on our primary needs and, causing us to neglect or pretend not to see that at our personal side there are those who need to be helped and maybe count on our. We can and must all do our part to re-establish the solidarity relationship that the pandemic has weakened, individual citizens, voluntary associations and local administrations. When we talk about gift we obviously refer both to the biological gift that saves human lives, such as organs and blood, and in a more general but no less important way, to that category of intangible assets that are the basis of a civil society and supportive. A gift can therefore also be a caress to an elderly person or a sick person, a prayer, a word of comfort, a smile, in short, everything that can transmit in an empathic way between human beings and make us better. Celebrating this day by reminding us of those who are less fortunate than us and therefore need to be helped and supported and let’s ask ourselves humbly if we do our part in our small way.
