With sincere thanks to the Institut Guttmann, for all your work throughout an already long history, for your realistic hopes, for saving people from despair.
On my visit today, on 7 April, International Health Day, devoted to the modern epidemic of road accidents.
Having visited the magnificent facilities, I have reaffirmed my conviction that cars are a symbol of freedom and well-being, but that their misuse makes them a danger. On the road, the price paid in the form of human lives each year is extremely high, but it is even higher when you take into account all those half-lives that are left on the road, the half-lives of the injured and their families. The existence of this Institute that manages to shine light on the future and give life to half-life, to make it whole again, is therefore so important.
