To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.

    Für jeden gibt es in seinem Leben einen besonderen Moment, in dem sie bildlich auf die Schulter geklopft werden und die Möglichkeit bieten, etwas ganz Besonderes zu tun, das für sie einzigartig und an ihre Talente angepasst ist. Was für eine Tragödie, wenn dieser Moment sie unvorbereitet oder unqualifiziert für das findet, was ihre schönste Stunde gewesen sein könnte.

    a cada uno de ellos llega en su vida un momento especial en el que se les toca figurativamente en el hombro y se les ofrece la oportunidad de hacer algo muy especial, único para ellos y adaptado a sus talentos. qué tragedia si ese momento los encuentra desprevenidos o no calificados para lo que podría haber sido su mejor momento.
