Santa in the city

Walking through the city center I meet a man dressed as Santa Claus. I watch him for a while, fixing his things, ready to take pictures with people. He looks tired. I begin to reflect: we all have our internal conflicts, we all face our battle. This gentleman, in simple gestures, makes the joy of many children and gives them a little hope.
