Очищаю пространство своего компьютера. И наткнулась сейчас речь Грейс Келли - принцессы Монако, ее образ был значимым для меня. И по качествам и по проявлению себя как женщины, как княгини. Трогательно. Жаль, что не сохранилось мое выступление в театре в этой речью. Зато в памяти остались приятные моменты. Хочу ее опубликовать. Она мне близка. Откликается всем сердцем.

"Мы очень признательны, что вы почтили своим присутствием наш скромный уголок.

Как-то раз, мой дядя сказал, повторяй каждый день, как молитву: "Если судьба улыбнется тебе и вынесет на вершины славы, используй это только во благо и всегда оставайся сама собой".
Кто-то спросит почему я покинула Голливуд?
Что ж, жизнь преподносит нам определенные ситуации , в которых можно многое переосмыслить, сделать свой выбор. И я выбрала Монако.
Может оно не очень велико, может быть оно покажется кому-то малозначимым, но это мой дом. И люди вокруг меня-это мои люди, они хорошие, они пытаются творить добро в своем маленьком уголке мира, по мере своих возможностей.
Может быть я наивна, но я верю в волшебные сказки.
Правда, я верю, что они станут реальностью, стоит нам того пожелать, если добиваться, не жалеть усилий. Я твердо верю, что мир сможет одолеть извечную ненависть, агрессию и вражду. Именно это и значит Монако для меня.
Я не таю злобы...Я лишь...Я здесь...Я делаю то, что могу, пытаюсь изменить мир к лучшему, как я это понимаю и свое отношение и отношение к нему.
Но всегда в реальной жизни, так же как и в сказке, кто-то хочет это разрушить, потому что ему не нравится или у него много силы. Кто-то из вас считает, что он имеет право, но я думаю, никто не вправе сокрушать по своей прихоти любовь и счастье.
Может меня так воспитали. И этот мир, что вокруг, не отвечает моим желаниям.

У нас есть шанс осознать, что в этом мире любовь торжествует, потому что...потому что я верю в любовь. Я верю, что любовь собрала нас здесь сегодня и любовь...любовь заставит нас отбросить страхи и предрассудки и только любовь, любовь поможет нам все исправить. Поэтому сегодня я готова ее защищать. Я надеюсь, каждый из вас будет делать то же по мере своих сил. "
