Hoy es el día más hermoso de nuestra vida, querido Sancho; los obstáculos más grandes, nuestras propias indecisiones; nuestro enemigo más fuerte, el miedo al poderoso y a nosotros mismos; la cosa más fácil, equivocarnos; la más destructiva, la mentira y el egoísmo; la peor derrota, el desaliento; los defectos más peligrosos, la soberbia y el rencor; las sensaciones más gratas, la buena conciencia, el esfuerzo para ser mejores sin ser perfectos, y sobretodo, la disposición para hacer el bien y combatir la injusticia dondequiera que esté.

Trump Faces Warm Welcome From Europe’s Eastern Nations



By Wojciech Moskwa, Ott Ummelas and Mira Rojanasakul

U.S. President Donald Trump can expect a friendlier reception in Warsaw this week than he would in western Europe, where he has fallen out with the leaders of France and Germany.
While Trump is at odds with many of his counterparts from the European Union over issues ranging from free trade to the environment, his visit to the Polish capital on July 5-6 is set to focus on a topic many in the bloc's east agree on—the need for U.S. security guarantees. Trump will be hosted by Polish President Andrzej Duda and meet participants of the so-called Three Seas Initiative, a club of east European nations stretched between the Baltic, Black and Adriatic Seas.

Unlike the U.S. head of state and French President Emmanuel Macron, Trump's counterparts from eastern Europe mainly have ceremonial roles as the lion's share of power in the region's parliamentary democracies lies with lawmakers and governments picked by the legislators.
