Cyber-message in a cyber-bottle, Feat. Robin Wright Penn

[Robin Wright Penn in Message in a Bottle (1999)]

To all people who usually don't think about it:
Being an expat is hard.
Speaking the whole time a foreign language is hard.
Living in a different culture is hard.

Be kind.
Because people from another countries are just like you.
They are better than how would you like to make them feel.

A tutte le persone che di solito non ci pensano:

Essere un expat è difficile.
Parlare tutto il tempo una lingua straniera è difficile.
Vivere in un'altra cultura è difficile.

Siate gentili.
Perché le persone che vengono da altri Paesi sono proprio come voi.
Sono persone migliori di come vorreste farle sentire.
